In case of conflicting feedback between me and Linus, it goes without
saying that Linus' opinion should prevail. I am trying to help a bit
and take some of the burden off his shoulders, but have neither his
skill nor his experience (which shows when you compare our patch
reviews). So for important stuff it is a good idea to wait until both
of us give a ack - the most likely conflict scenario being that I give
a pass overlooking something that Linus will catch.
