Making this type of announcement without coordinating with us on a plan
for moving forward is pretty lame. Especially considering that we've
kept asking you privately about how to work together to reconcile -fb
with upstream, and your response essentially boiled down to "What's in
it for me..?".

So if you really, really need an incentive to "do the right thing", how
about I start not accept kernel patches from you until you're ready to
drop -fb and start working with upstream for real..?
