Nope, I don't want it to go in this time around - the amount of patches
you posted last week was _far_ too much for what was billed as the last
week before the merge window, and by doing so you significantly
contributed to my stress levels.

I've not been following the discussion on these patches, and don't plan
to until after the merge window has closed.  Ditto for your other patches.

The last week before a merge window is supposed to be for final testing,
publishing "what's queued" stuff etc.  I wonder why I don't do that -
could it be because I'm always working right up to the next merge window
putting stuff in my git tree so I don't have any time to stablize it?

Before you get the idea that I'm being unfair, I too have a few series of
patches which I've not published, and I'm not pushing this merge window.
There's also patch series which I have posted, but haven't had a chance
to update for comments back, and so too aren't going to be going in this
time around.

Please, spread out posting of patches over the cycle.  Don't post 100+
patches across several patch series in just one day, and then expect
them to get merged within a week.
