Sorry, this isn't going to make the next merge window, I've closed my
tree at the end of last week to new submissions (because it got too
painful to maintain the for-next branch due to the number of cross-
dependencies between branches.) The only patches I'll entertain this
week and throughout the merge window are bug fixes.

according to speedtest.net.
