Threading worked just fine, but you still shouldn't send out patches
like this without any independant information in the patch itself saying
what it does and what it is for. That's just bad engineering :)

Also, usually RFC like patches and series are ignored, I know I almost
always ignore them because if the author doesn't think they are ready to
be reviewed, why would I spend time on them compared to other patches
that their authors think are ready for review.

Remember, patch review is the most limited resource we have.
