Roberto, as I tried explaining previously, this feature is not a
simple bug fix.  These patches, if upstreamed, will be upstreamed the
normal way, during an open window.  Whether they are classified as a
bug fix has yet to be decided.

Please stop Cc'ing stable.  If I don't Cc stable before sending the pull request, then Greg and Sasha have been really good about deciding which patches should be backported.  (Please refer to the comment on "Cc'ing stable" in section "5) Select the recipients for your patch" in Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst.)

I'll review these patches, but in the future please use an appropriate patch set cover letter title in the subject line.

thanks,

Mimi
