Pushed to next for more testing and review.
This really is getting too late in the development cycle for so many
fixes. It means the code was not ready to be merged in the first place.
I fully agree what you're saying. I'll learn the lesson here and take
factors more conservative attitude from now on. No excuses. I'm sorry
Partly the reason for recent increase in regressions has been
increased real-world use of TPM2 and thus issues have started to pop
up that's a lame excuse anyway.
