I missed the deadline because I was waiting on others to sort out telling
me whether a bugfix patch was actually correct, and then it took several
days and mails to get an attributation line out of them.  I finally got
that yesterday, and since I'm not doing kernel work (in fact, I'm hardly
in front of the computer at the moment) these things are going to _HAVE_
to wait until this weekend.

By agreement with Linus, I do not send pull requests more often than once
a week, absolute maximum.  So if I've something pending in the queue, I
hold off sending the queue until that issue is resolved.

Don't like it?  Tough.  This is the workflow that I've been forced into
by other flame wars.  It would be my personal preference to ensure that
fixes make their way in a timely manner into mainline, but due to that,
it's just not possible.
