The thing is merging doesn't change the code, reviewing patches in
Linus' tree or patches on there way to Linus' tree,
shouldn't really affect review unless its in the creating a new
userspace API area.

so please continue to review the patches even if they make it
upstream, you can still provide feedback,

just because something lands in the core kernel tree doesn't mean it
is actually perfect, far from it..
