This is now in 4.14.86 so all should be fine now.

As for "speed", most of the time people are complaining that I move too
slow in getting fixes backported and to their patches. Rarely am I told
I am moving too fast, that's a nice change :)

As for doing releases on a "regular" schedule, I've tried it, and it
didn't work any better/worse than what I'm doing now as everyone who
consumes these kernels have their own cadence / acceptance process and I
can never get in sync with _everyone_ let alone almost _anyone_.

And due to travel and other things (like security issues coming up),
trying to nail down a specific day-of-the-week doesn't work out at all
either.

thanks,
