Code sitting in linux-next keeps you awake? I think you need to
exercise more so that you can sleep better :)

We are not ignoring _constructive_ feedback, please realize the

First Andy does a preemptive NAK of a pull request that was never sent,
and now you want to kick it out of linux-next for no valid reason. If I

kernel community who don't like me at the moment.

This is just getting ridiculous.
