Yeah, ok, I did not get that and I had already reposted by the time you
clarified, sorry.

Anyway, is it so bad that we cannot look at the patches in the order
that they are in right now (even if this means that maybe a few more
days would pass)? To me it makes a bit more sense anyway to first
consolidate the code that is already in the tree right now, before
adding new logic. And I don't really want to rebase the patches again to
change the ordering and risk a build breakage without a good reason.
