Along similar lines, would it be reasonable to include the rawio patch
for the next release?  Including it would allow glibc to pick up the
linux/raw.h header, and allow the util-linux package to build the raw
command.  This would be nice, as it would allow the use of (for
example) software like Oracle to use it without rebuilding the
kernel.

FWIW, Redhat (don't know about others) ship kernels with this patch
applied.

ttyl,
