To begin with: I'm the one to blame for the annoying printouts. If
people dislike the printout then I'm all for disabling it later on in
the -rc phase. As you understand the goal is to motivate people to
update their drivers. =)

I'm not the right person to answer the merge policy question, but
wouldn't it be good to submit patches regardless of when they will be
picked up? OTOH, I guess knowing when helps if you have a bunch of
other changes queued up for your drivers though...

Any thoughts?
