+Subject: iozone3 263 patch for arm and License question
+> Morning
+> I want to include iozone3 in OpenEmbedded [1] metadata to give it for
+> other developers. Currently OE is used to build few distributions for
+> misc platforms: ARM, SH3, SH4, x86, PowerPC and different types of
+> machines (PDA, settopbox, devboards, desktops, thin clients, routers).
+> According to your distribution of derivations is forbidden. Packaging
+> iozone3 in OpenEmbedded will not involve any source code changes. But
+> when I was building it for ARM I discovered that fileop binary was not
+> built - so I created patch for it (attached). Not yet tested it on target
+> device.
+> Thus, I seek your written permission via e-mail to distribute a package of
+> the unmodified source code and also a package of the pre-compiled binary.
+> Your copyright statement will be included in the package.
