Stop whining. Really.

Everybody understands that it should be fixed. That's not the question.

But it should be fixed _quickly_. In this case, I have a bisection report
FROM TWO DAYS AGO. And I'm still kicking myself for not just reverting
that piece-of-shit commit then, because I spent the time to look at the
oops and the commit, and could tell that it was crap.

Instead, I _did_ wait for the subsystem maintainer to get around to it. As
a result of waiting, I've now wasted time for a lot of other people.

So stop your claptrap. You're wrong. I would suggest you now thank Dmitry,
and ask his forgiveness for (a) wasting his time and (b) then berating him
for it.
