Sorry for not responding sooner for this, travel and the meeting today
took up my time.

Anyway, as we discussed today in the Maintainers summit, let's leave the
Code of Conduct text alone for now. It matches what "upstream" has with
the exception of removing that one paragraph. If you have issues with
the wording in it, please work with upstream to fix the issues there as
hundreds of other projects will benefit with your changes if they are
really needed.

For now, let's let things settle down and not worry about hypothetical
situations that might possibly happen in some way or another as we can
debate that type of thing endlessly (it's a good skill we have which
makes us great kernel developers, but it not always transferrable to
other environments).

If real issues do come up in the future, we will address them then, as
we always have the option to change and revisit things as needed.
