Well, for a patch that was objected to so strongly, I think it didn't get
enough review from other relevant people before being pushed upstream.
It looks like Balbir didn't see it before for one example.

It's been lots of time since the patch was originally posted to send it to
the LKML for discussion and so on and to receive some comments that
might help to improve it. I have no idea why that wasn't done and I suspect
there was some corporate pressure on Len to push it upstream as quickly as
possible.

Best,
Rafael
