Ah, that would explain it.  I had a window open to reply to this but
hadn't found the _from_ of this move yet.

I'll probably move it into a subdirectory eventually, but for now no
objection to the move.

Might as well just adjust Greg's patch if it hasn't gone in yet.

One question though: what does VME stand for?  The Documentation file
doesn't say, the Kconfig entry in the directory doesn't say either, the
comment at the top of vme.c doesn't say...

I'm guessing "Virtual Memory Exfoliator".


GNU/Linux isn't: Linux=GPLv2, GNU=GPLv3+, they can't share code.
Either it's "mere aggregation", or a license violation.  Pick one.
