Well, I was aware of your emails yet my free time didn't really allow me
to follow those patch bombs. I responded only when some email subject
hit my eyes as being non-stable candidate. So by no means the MM
backports were reviewed by me. And considering how hard it is to get any
review for MM patches in general I strongly suspect that others didn't
review either.

In general I am quite skeptical about the automagic backports
selections, to be honest. MM patches should be reasonably good at
selecting stable backports and adding more patches on top just risks
regressions.
