No, that's not OK, sorry. This goes beyond what I can offer at this
point in time.

I offered to push selected patches to Linus, with no other guarantee
than the fact that said patches have been carefully reviewed and are
believed to be correct. I do not have the time to do more than that.

If this isn't OK with you, then I will have to withdraw my proposal.
It's up to you.
