Makes me wonder again if we should start adding
to any patches that fix regressions, that way maintainers and reviewers
would have something to filter for -- and I would become aware of all
regression fixes in the work, too.
P.S.: BTW, let me tell regzbot that Linus merged the fix for the build
#regzbot fix: ba0ad6ed89f
FWIW, the one for the gcc warnings Laurent mentioned elsewhere in
this thread is not merged yet afaics.
