What patch? I fail to see anything in my inboxes that I can apply, only
this long thread that makes no sense at all.

Please resend anything that you want to have applied, in a format that I
can apply it, _AND_ get everyone to agree that it is the correct
solution.

Asking me to go look up random web archives, of mailing list threads I
was never copied on, is a sure way to get your email ignored, as again,
there is nothing I can do with it. You know better than this.
