    Dont be silly. Have you never seen a faulty v1 fix patch in -mm
    or any of the other dozens of generic trees, replaced by a
    better working v2 patch in the next release?

    FYI, we still have not tracked down the SCSI bug. Latest
    tip:master is able to boot and work on the affected systems,
    while the upstream kernel does not even boot because the fix (or
    the revert, should the fix be deemed unwanted) is stuck in the
    SCSI tree.

    But even with all known SCSI fixes applied there's still a crash
    in the SCSI code that Thomas can trigger - reproduced on
    mainline as well.

    Instead of spreading advice in this thread about how to run a
    high-volume generic tree [which you've never done before] you
    could also have used your time to look at the crashes that were
    posted, and you could have helped us fix the bug ;-)
