You asked for clarification on the commit message, I didn't hear any
objections to the content of the patch itself.

Because I can fix up the log message at any time prior to pulling it
into my official -next branch. Since that's all you objected to, I can
take the patch and wait for the final version of the comments. It's not
a big deal Or.

Comment on what to the submitter? That the patch might not have been
-rc material? I would have been OK with it around rc1 or rc2, just not
this late in the rc cycle. In the end, I don't, nor can I, rely on
submitters to determine what's RC material and what isn't, that's what
I'm supposed to be doing. I will always apply my own judgment on that
issue and submitters will learn over time when their patches get skipped
on any sort of a regular basis.

I emailed the submitters off list about it and provided them a list of
what patches went where and why.

I'm sorry, but you'll have to refresh my memory on this issue.
