I know your pissed off, but take a deep breath and consider this
from my position.

If I don't put a line in the sand somewhere, everyone can say
"I've been working so hard, I posted it to the lists a thousand
times, I have tons of testers" and I have to put the change in.

That doesn't work, so please wait until the next release to get
your changes in.  And get them into a tree that gets exposure
in linux-next.  Then you have nothing to worry about.

Thank you.
