We are at -rc6 and assuming v5.9 is released after -rc7 that would
give this roughly a week and a half in v5.9-rcX; considering the
history of this patch (reverted, obvious problems in development) I'm
not confident -rc6 provides enough soak time (even if we go to -rc8 I
remain skeptical). In addition, we've got a history of not taking new
work that isn't a bug-fix past the -rc5/-rc6 timeframe. This is why
I'm debating holding this until after the merge window.

I asked for your thoughts on the matter, surely you have the liberty
to comment on your own opinion :)
