Sorry, I did not mean it that way at all, I apologize.

I do appreciate all the work you do on your subsystem, I was not
criticizing that at all. I was just trying to make a bad joke that it
felt like no xfs patches should ever be accepted into stable kernels
because more are always being fixed, so the treadmill wouldn't stop.

It's like asking a processor developer "what chip to buy" and they
always say "the next one is going to be great!" because that is what
they are working on at the moment, yet you need to buy something today
to get your work done. That's all, no harm ment at all, sorry if it
came across the wrong way.
