Hello,

In order to keep an interface I'm used to, I'd like to include a subset of
list.h (basic list funcionality, without RCU) in a library which will be
released under the LGPL.

Being it mostly macros and inlines and quite obvious functionality, rewriting
is would be like rewriting variables :)

So, who is the copyright holder of that file, so that I can ask him permission
to use the file in a Lesser GPL project?

Thanks!
Bye,

Linus I believe for the most part. I wrote the prefetching changes to
for_each_ functions and I'd consider those at least so obvious you don't
need permission (but you can have it).
