 I don't recall being asked; mind that I might not get to messages I have 
not been cc-ed in a timely manner and I may miss some altogether.  With 
the amount of mailing list traffic that passes by me my scanner may fail 
to trigger.  Sorry if this causes anybody trouble, but such is life.

 Coincidentally, I have just posted some notes on SYNC in a different 
thread, see <http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1601.3/03080.html>.  
There's a reference to an older message of mine there too.  I hope this 
answers your questions.
