[dm-devel] New dm filters and patch format for kernel config



Hello,

Regarding new filters:
dm-delay patch add the filter and its entries for menuconfig and make,
but dm-loop do not.
Let us have a look to the missing diffs for dm-loop <once dm-delay applied> :

I think an other patch format (ed?) to add the Kconfig entries would
be more convenient:
**diffs may not work** on Kconfig or Makefile, depending on what new
filter is already
patched in.
I'll have a look on how to tell the patch util:  "Just add those lines
before the last one" ,
but I'm sure many of you already know :-) hum ?
