Getting my feet wet again

… with Linux kernel patching! Yes, I’m into it again. After my latest patches, which were in the usb subsystem (just stylefixes,… but hey! I’m just getting my feet wet with it!), I’m doing a little bit stylefixing again (in the cdrom driver). But I’m looking forward to do some greater patches, to split up (very) long functions into smaller ones. I’m just curious how I can test my patches. I submitted an email to the kernelnewbies mailinglist and I’m really looking forward to the replies! I’ll update my blog after I tried to test my code!
