Ok, not only was this pull request late, it had a semantic conflict
that causes the end result to not compile.

You must have known about that conflict, since it was reported for
linux-next. Alexander Shishkin had a patch for it.

This is the kind of thing you should talk about in your pull request.
Yes, I find these things out. Yes, I can fix it up myself. But the
whole point of linux-next is finding these things and making the
parties aware of it.

If you don't then use the linux-next information when you send my pull
request, exactly *what* was the point of it ever being in linux-next
in the first place?

I'm annoyed. This is not the kind of sh*t I want to deal with on the
Friday before the merge window closes.

I've unpulled it for now. And I'm not sure I want to pull it later
when I'm less annoyed.

So just to make it really clear to people: if you ignore the reports
from linux-next, then I will damn well ignore you. Comprende? Fair is
