NV_VERBOSE Yep, but at the cost of using a dynamic patch (sed), which at the end, make it worth (gendiff will fails to create a ). Creating a static patch based on this will unlikely be accepted upstream , then will need to be rebase on each releases. So, thx for sharing your way, but that was indeed on purpose. Of course one can still fix it better upstream. But that fine enough for me. Any other issue with this review ?
