Can you not talk to people like that? Even if you think that is an OK
way to treat anyone - which it isn't, certainly not on dri-devel@ with
the fd.o Code of Conduct, and not according to the kernel's either - I
have absolutely no idea how you can look at the work the AMD people
have put in over many years and conclude that they're 'lazy'.

If this makes you so angry, step back from the keyboard for a few
minutes, and if you still can't participate in reasonable discussion
like an adult, maybe step out of the thread entirely.
