I have a note here that it's on hold, but I think I added that note after
sending the patch to Thomas on the 18th. If there was earlier controversy
about it then I guess I forgot to make the note at the time.

It happens sometimes. But I must say that it happens most frequently with
time-management things when you are the reviewer, because the review
discussion seems to happen a loooong time after I merge the patch and
proceeds at only a few emails per week.

Not that I'm saying "Roman, please review stuff faster". You review well,
and in detail and it's welcome. But that is the cause and effect.


There are two contentious time patches:

provide-u64-version-of-jiffies_to_usecs-in-kernel-tsacctc.patch
time-close-small-window-for-vsyscall-time-inconsistencies.patch

Possily I got the discussions confused and assumed they all
concerned provide-u64-version-of-jiffies_to_usecs-in-kernel-tsacctc.patch
