No. He's the VFS maintainer, he can do the VFS changes he likes.

James, these things happen. It's *normal* to have a certain amount of
overlap. I just want to know about it when it happens, because
sometimes (thankfully very rarely) there are also then semantic
changes involved, and repeated clashes tend to mean that something is
badly abstracted or whatever.

So conflicts aren't "bad" per se. I want to see them, because they're
a kind of heads-up for me: while any individual conflict isn't
necessarily a problem at all, it's something that I just want to be
aware of.

So I am not complaining about - or finding it disturbing - that we had
a conflict. It's all par for the course. But I don't want
submaintainers to merge the conflicts away.
