I think Fedora were right to merge it, and I think it was proper to
merge it into the upstream kernel.

But I also think the large size of that userbase should have been
respected by "doing the right thing" here, and that means not making
it so hard for Fedora users to use upstream kernels out of the box.

Making the "sandbox" claim cuts both ways Alan.
