Then let Linux sign off on it if he's so eager to get it in there. I can't blame the Nouveau developers for not wanting to sign off on that binary blob.

The "nt" marker is cargo-culted all over the place, even to forums where it's just noise (like this one).

What does it mean? I've never seen "(nt)" before (then again I tend to
avoid forums).

simple

nt = no text

(nt)?

All right, I'll ask the obvious. What the heck is "(nt)"? Is it short for "(Non-technical)"?

(nt)?

(nt) means "no text", as in: "if you've read the subject line here, you don't need to read the body of my comment, as it contains no additional text."

(nt)?

The other usage I've seen is to put a $ at the end of the subject to indicate that's the end of the message.

(nt)?

Especially used when the comment is rejected if it has no text (hence n/t - a no-text comment!)

Cheers,
Wol
