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,

Lucas De Marchi
