    If Linus were to go straight from merge window to merge window,
    with stabilization happening in parallel, then there would be
    no stable basis at the start of each merge window and bugs can
    just pile up.

    Speeding things up could lead to the same kind of code quality
    issues we used to have in the 1.3, 2.1, 2.3 and 2.5 kernel series.

    Slowing down regularly is good, not bad.

    All rights reversed.
