    James, this is the last time *ever* I apply patches from you after -rc1.

    You used to have serious problems with the merge window, but for a few
    releases you then seemed to "get it" and got on with the program.

    But now it's back to "anythign goes", apparently. And I'm going to take a
    hard-line approach with you now.

    For SCSI merges, if I don't get the first pull request in the FIRST week
    of the merge window, don't bother sending one later, unless it's pure
    fixes and regressions.

    And after -rc1, I don't want to see crap like this:

    46 files changed, 2837 insertions(+), 2050 deletions(-)

    because that simply is *not* appropriate after -rc1, much less -rc2.

    So I pulled, but I wanted to make it very clear that I'm very unhappy with
    you right now, and you're on my shit-list for the next few releases. Get
    the changes in before -rc1, or just *wait*. If they aren't ready before
    the merge window opens, they simply shouldn't be merged at all.
