This series of patches were initially released by me and were also accepted by kkeil.
It was ack'ed by keil and is now in -mm tree list of andrew morton. <>
There are many other drivers with similar implementation. Please have a
look at
linux2.6/drivers/char/sonypi.c , ide/pci/cs5530.c etc..

Moreover my earlier patch for sound/oss/trident.c was ack'ed by Alan cox and is now in the
