I think you missed the subtely of what I said. It's not "their duty"
to never make a mistake, and it is not expected that they will catch
everything. When they do miss something, or make a mistake you probably
tell them in a straight forward fashion. In this case, what you
effectively said to me was:

"Hey. I would appreciate it if you would stop not
noticing this change that I made to your code through
Linus without telling you. *Twice* no less. Wake up!
Wasn't it obvious? It is *your duty* to notice these
one line changes that happen to break the build on
a platform that I care about but doesn't have any
consequences on the platforms you are probably testing.
Oh, and the aic79xx driver... well I didn't bother to
look at that because it's not in my configuration.
Oh well."

And I get all of this grief *after* I already included the change
instead of after the first time I missed it. You really make me
