Hm. I didn't know the driver flags can taint resumes too.

--- my resume ---

Worked on kernel driver A and B. Got them mainlined.

--- interview ---

Interviewer: You developed driver A. Our developer who looked into it
said it was tainted crap.

Interviewed: Has your developer gotten his own code into upstream kernel?

--- branch 1 ---

Interviewer: No.

Interviewed: I would be happy to assist your developers in raising their
code quality up to the crap level.

Interviewer: Err.

--- branch 2 ---

Interviewer: Yes. He's Andrew Morton.

Interviewed: Err. Did he think it was OK?

Interviewed: Sure. Welcome to Google.


Moral of the story: If your future employer has clueless people you'll be
involved with shit anyway.
