    I don't think this reply has anything to do with the sentiments expressed
    by Geert above. My interpretation of his comments is just that it is a
    pity noone noticed the problem while it was only in linux-next and
    reported it widely (like on linux-arch) so something could have been done
    before it all Linus' tree. There was no suggestion of slowing the pace
    of development.
