Look at the analysis I just posted.

Most of those changes were complete and utter CRAP.

Build warning fixes, diagnostic message tidyups. You have
to be kidding me.

Maybe a OOPS fix for common hardware. But not for something
like obscure WAN stuff.

But otherwise, it is in fact strict by the rules regression
list stuff. That's all we're fixing now.

And remember it's not you who gets your head chopped off if
I try to merge in stuff that isn't appropriate now. And Linus
has made it pretty clear what the goals of the non-merge-window
period is, and that is to fix regressions. Otherwise the process
never comes to closure in a reasonable amount of time.
