There were reviews I've addressed those as well, this is already 6th version of 
this series.

Adrian Hunter who is relevant from Intel is on the list. Also I've addressed 
his comments in v5. Adding Alan as he expressed some interest this code lately.
The code was of course  reviewed and tested internally. 
But this is indeed a good place to ask you the  guys that addressed me 
privately or on the mailing list  for additional review and  yours X-by? 

Thanks
