I don't think people really understand what "Codefreeze" is all about.

It's not about discussing issues. I agreed with your patch, but that has
no relevance at all. The kernel is frozen. The MAP_DENYWRITE kind of thing
is a behaviour issue that has very little real-world impact indeed, and as
such it's something that I can consider changing but as it's not arguably
a bug-fix it's not relevant to me right now.

So please continue to work on the F patch, but if you grow impatient you
have only yourself to blame. I certainly agree that there is little reason
for all this discussion.
