I think your position is confused. Everything that Vladimir (in his
three posts) in this thread so far have been correct. Vladimir is not
the one doing any trolling in this thread.

Vladimir has not requested anything. He hasn't whined. He hasn't
wasted time. He has stated the following in _three_ short succinct
(a) no one gets to impose stipulate timescales unless they're willing
to financially sponsor the work.
(b) the adopted position of the Linux kernel developers.

Luke Leighton on the other hand is demanding that we (Linux kernel
developers) come up with proposals within three days so that Luke can
act as a middle man between us and Allwinner, and is blaming the Linux
kernel community for the situation with Allwinner.

As you seem to have your facts wrong, I can only conclude that you
are also trolling... I hope I'm wrong about that and you've just made
an innocent mistake.
