Well, no wonder that portion of the code was relatively clean since the code James did were generally fairly messy.
Give me a day or two to examine your portion of the code, but at a first glance, you appear to be correct that he took your code without giving you credit.
Generally speaking, I do not rely on your past work, so I only learn about this when you point it out.
This is the second time this has happened (first time was the VT1632(A) DVI code, and James committed the buggy code into the repository), and if you wanted to, let me know if there are other portions that other people copied from your past work without attribution.
I will use "Suggested-by" to refer to you in the commit message, will this be okay?
