Gents, it's understandable that emotions might be running high.

What's the point in pointing fingers at each other - there is enough
to go in each direction.
Let us all step back for a second and consider how we can make things better.

I think it'll be nice to have some/most of the common concerns that
Thierry/others comes across documented - in-kernel, blog post, other.
Such that one can reference to specific points as patch falls sub-par.
We all want to have a balance of nicely written driver and quick
merge.

Inki, I believe myself and others have invited you before on
#dri-devel. This is another medium where you can poke devs and from my
experience - it tends to be more efficient, most of the time.

Thanks
Emil
