It's a lot easier to sneak something cute into code when it isn't maintained in
git repositories and mailing lists readable by everybody and their pet llama.

I'll admit to not doing a *lot* of extensive review, but I try to at least read
Kconfig patches (mostly out of self-defense so when I do a 'make oldconfig' I
get presented with something useful ;) - and it's amazing how often I spot
issues in stuff that's presumably already had several pair of eyeballs look at
it already.

Probably what happened - some programmer had a 60 hour week, wrote the code on
a Friday and had a sudden attack of the sillies, and it went through a code
review meeting, but they had to cover 800 lines of code in a one-hour meeting
so nobody looked *too* close...
