What? We discussed this to the bone!

Radu followed all the recommendations, collected all the feedback from 
major subsystems SPI and USART, resent the series again.

It was then forgotten. Wrong series was finally applied (which could 
trigger 0-day reports, I warn you)... and now we are discussing about 
the implementation of *v2* (we're at v12)!

Come on, Greg's tree is fixed now. We can catch-up with v11..v12 changes 
with patches and cleanup the mess together.

Just one misalignment with one patch merged for v4.19-rc1, fixed the 
same day, cannot generate such a reaction after months of development.
