    No offense intended, but Rusty's trivial bot is often too slow
    for critical patches, so trivial-but-critical would be better off
    going to thru the x.y tree IMO.

    It will if they fix real problems that people are experiencing.

    The trivil bot and/or kernel-janitors paths for patches are better
    used for slow/non-critical patches, not patches that need quick
    attention and merging.
