    It's not just an excuse, there are repeatably problems with getting the
    block stuff pulled into -mm. Sometimes it's my problem, but not always.
    Then I get a note saying that pulling was disabled due to merge
    problems, usually right before -mmX goes out. So it misses that release.

    With bsg it wasn't a huge issue imho, since it was in fairly good shape
    and it the issue were mainly with integration. I do try to make sure
    stuff gets tested, but I also know which stuff is more important to get
    exposure and multi-user testing on. bsg wasn't one of those, it's just a
    lowly driver.
