Why have these been applied, I haven't reviewed them? As far as I can
tell they were sent before the merge window so I'd expect a resend at
this point...

The patch set have been floating around for some time and besides

Most of that time as far as I can tell they weren't being posted to
subsystem maintainers, you can't expect people to be aware of patches
that they are not being sent and single postings get missed or dropped
for all sorts of reasons.

the v2 you were cc'ed by Dan, I also poked you a week ago for v4 [1].

That post from a week ago was you copying me into a thread I wasn't CCed
on saying I should have been sent the patches. My expectation would
therefore be that someone would send me the patches, I'm obviously going
to prioritize patches that actually get sent to me over ones where I
have to go searching to try to turn up copies.

I admit I should have CC'ed you the exact patches and not only
the cover letter.

Don't be surprised that I assumed you simply don't care.

You have unreasonable expectations here. At the very least I would have
expected something along the lines of "hey, you don't seem to have
looked at these" before you just applied things, and ideally ensuring
that the patches had actually been sent to everyone with a reasonable
lead time so there was a good chance that review could happen.

In fact you were notified only of v2 of the patch set AFAICS.
There is indeed a chance it might have gone unnoticed through
your mailbox (or classified otherwise).

I need to be more wary in such cases in the future.

Still, we're awaiting your comments

If someone sends me the patches...
