Look, you've had your own periods as an unavailable maintainer so I wouldn't
throw stones - and it's no secret that I'm still working on bcache.

Really, as long as you think it's ok to commit patches without CCing the mailing
list _or_ the maintainer, then fuck you. I wouldn't do that to you and I don't
know anyone else who would, so as long as that's your attitude about it there's
really nothing to discuss.
