    I agree with you, but last time I tried a large patch for fixing this
    I've been told to split the patches for each maintainer
    (http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/linux-kernel/2010/9/7/4616618). As
    you noticed it's a pain to apply them and it's even more for splitting
    in a per maintainer basis since it touches a lot of files.

    Randy, Jason: as you see maybe the split approach was not a good one.

    I'am all for applying this once, as Ingo said.



    regards,
