I did a quick review of the offending patch queue. And some of them
should go in since they are fixing real bugs (as far as I can tell from
a quick review). Others have to clearly wait for the next merge window.

Thomas, please go through the list of patches and pick the real bug
fixes. The cleanup patches can't go in since they are after the merge
window. And being one of the offenders why Dave got flamed by Linus,
there is no way to get these through. And my big offender was a
regression that broke userspace and came with a lengthy commit message.

Speaking of which, you better have a more convincing commit message if
you wanna get something in after the merge window. It should make clear
why this is a bug or a regression and why it can't wait until the next
merge window.

Please take this into account for any future patches since Linus now set
a really high bar for patches after the merge window.

Regards

Marcel
