Sedat, you need to relax a little. You're testing a linux next tree
right during the merge window where patches are flying back and forth.
Things like that can happen and you, if you're really willing to test
such bleeding edge kernels, also would have to accept the fact that
fixes don't magically appear where they have to in no time.

I debugged an issue which apparently got fixed already but I'm not
complaining. People are trying their best and screaming at them is not
constructive. At all.

I'd suggest simply reporting the issue, maybe trying to debug it
yourself and patiently waiting. I'm sure you can find anything else to
do in the meantime :-)
