There isn't any particular urgency (at least until fg-kaslr patches try
to make it 64MiB bigger), but it's unclear how long to wait before
sending a reminder -- Documentation/process suggests that comments
should be received in a week or so, pinging after 4 and 6 weeks seemed
reasonable. If x86 has a longer queue, might be worth documenting that
