We can do the extra work, but.. [and I have few reviews for the
original series but I believed it is not worth the noise].
Could you remind us why we are doing this extra work?
You are angry at unm.edu for some strange reason. They sent _three_
known-bad patches, and those are listed here:
https://www-users.cs.umn.edu/~kjlu/papers/full-disclosure.pdf . They
made sure those did not enter any git. Yes, that is slightly
questionable and they apologized. _But those were not even sent from
The rest of their work is good. Yes, I found one useless patch, and
there are proably few more, but there's no indication those are evil,
and their error rate is pretty much "normal".
More importantly, it is pretty clear Sasha is pushing patches into
-stable without review. I don't see why that's tolerated, and effort
there would be more useful.
Please cc me if you decide to do any autogenerated reverts in
mainline. Because I don't believe that's okay thing to do.
