This patch aside - Andrew how do you deal with a large amount of patches
and make sure they are tested? Is there a weekly Test Tuesday where you
kick off your automated tests and dilligently look for any variations?

Or is it more of compile the kernel with X features and run it for a week
doing normal (and abnormal!) things to see if it falls over?

Thanks!
