I don't feel like holding patches that were posted before you did
because you did them some time ago and never submitted them is
reasonnable and / or encouraging for new submitters of patches.

I'd really like to get more sunxi-people contributing, and that starts
with that kind of trivial stuff. Holding them back because one of the
usual (and experienced) developpers is a bit counter-productive (and
I'm sure you still have a lot of patches to submit anyway ;)).

I fully agree.

And here as well.
