He continues to take non-regression fixes and minor cosmetic commits
from other trees.

The basic idea is to BALANCE the lateness of -rc with the seriousness of
the problem being fixed, and the technical complexity of the fix itself.

The later the -rc, the more you need to take into account how likely it
is to create additional problems. But did you READ the patches and
extended commit descriptions, to see if additional problems were likely?

Late -rc does not mean "no bug fixes at all except regressions" if you
look at the commits going into the kernel tree.

Late -rc does not mean putting off memory corruption fixes for 6 months.
