If you had bothered to read any of my earlier mail you would realize that
this is complete and utter nonsense. I expect there to be breakage, and I
expect that I will be the one fixing it up (even when most of the time
that breakage is not even in my own tree). Unsurprisingly, this is
largely a result of SH being one of the first architectures testing these
new core kernel facilities, which is something you seem intent on just
writing off completely. I can imagine why s390 is a pleasure to deal
with in a -tip context, when you break their tree, no one complains.

Where I take issue with -next is that this is not an isolated thing, and
over time it has only become more frequent. In the case of -mm, releases
were infrequent, but we did have this thing called quality control,
something that is utterly lacking in -next and which the trees being
sucked in seem unable to adhere to on their own.

Rather than wasting any more time on this, we can continue this at kernel
summit during the -next session. If the consensus is that I'm just being
unconstructive and my workflow is inherently broken, I can live with

Nor have been any of your responses. At least we've found something to
agree on!
