Subject Re: [PATCH] avoid bflush() when pipelining
Date Sat, 25 Jan 1997 15:52:24 GMT
I'd vote to get this in today. It would be nice if we can try
to make 1.2b6 a release candidate, and I'm not sure that we
can if we don't get changes like this, and some of the others
I am seeing in the past 24 hours, into 1.2b5.
