I would like to point out something Saurabh pointed out to Ankur, some days ago:

In this particular case, I did not and will not ack these series of patches.

I have seen you have taken some of my suggestions, but sent them as separate, later patches.
Such as this patch (patch 1), which has:
> UINT32 index[8];

while your patch 7 changes it to:
> UINT32 index[2];

I would ack a patch only if it has the correct / agreed upon form.
So please re-make the patch1, so it does not have "index[8]", if it's agreed that we will not keep "index[8]".

Also, my suggestion was to use two separate variables, instead of an array, each to have a specific name.
If you consider a better approach to keep it as an array, please do not "Acked-by: Samuel Ghinet", it is possible I do not agree with your alternative.
Also, if you ignore a suggestion of mine, please do not say "Acked-by: Samuel Ghinet"
Or when I suggest you add some doc comments, it is possible I do not find the documentation clear enough, or complete.

So this patch goes: Not acked-by: Samuel Ghinet <sghinet at cloudbasesolutions.com>
