Depends. There is a limit to how long you may be willing to wait after
people. Sometimes the only way to make progress is to merge the thing
and hope that someone who cares will test the stuff during the ~2 months
-rc period and provide any fix then. And if that doesn't happen during
that time then either the code is just right and no one noticed the
change, or no one cares anymore.

IMHO, Rob posted those patches many times now for quite a while (many
months) already. So I'd suggest simply pushing that stuff into mainline
as is.
