If you use so many capital letters in the subject, it would be
reasonable to provide links your previous messages, so that the
attention you have received is diverted from your feelings to your
problem.  Also, it's often helpful to rephrase your question, add more
details and show that you did some research.

Maintainers cannot always reply to every bug report.  They are
responsible for development, not for support.  You may get better
answers from people not listed in the MAINTAINERS file.

I may be able to look at the hostap_pci issue, just not right now.
