SubjectRe: [PATCH v8 0/5] Add a unified parameter "nopvspin"
From
Date
Hi Maintainers,

May I get a final update on this patchset?

There is only a few days remaining before my layoff at Oracle. I can't
login the mail address after that.

No matter if you prefer to reject it, please let me know. I'd like to
get an end to this patchset.

Thanks

Zhenzhong
