Sorry to hit you with reality, but it just will not happen that I will 
try to convience any Linux kernel maintainer (anymore). It is their job 
to decide what they want and not mine to convince them. I offer code and 
arguments, but I will not offer my pride, ego or how you want to name 
it. If Linux kernel maintainers are unable to deal with the power 
they've got, that isn't my problem.
