.. and notice how I

In other words, I would be a lot happier if you didn't say "majority". I
would be a ton happioer if you could HONESTLY say that every single one
was a regression.

And the thing is, you cannot. Some of the ones I pointed you to were
actually regressions due to _other_ patches you had much too happily sent
me after the merge window had already closed).

Umm. The only defending I have seen was a F*CKING DISGRACE, since nobody
apparently had the balls to stand up and admit that the whole problem
happened after -rc1 in the first place!

In other words, the "defense" was just making excuses for EXACTLY the
behaviour I'm trying to tell you shouldn't have happened in the first
place.

Please. You're still making excuses for this, even after I pointed out
that ALL of the problems with the whole loopback driver thing happened
after the merge window.
