Fully agreed.

Alan, I'm not doing real-time consulting with you.  The code is
provided in the best effort manner and it most likely will be
underrated (like all ATA/IDE work is) anyway so I do not really care
that much if it will be merged ever.  Once it will be merged it may
only mean more unpaid support time for me since some maintainers are
not doing any real maintenance work these days..   Please at least
respect some of my time spent on all this burdensome silly little
driver differences comparisons and read the whole patch set before
making comments on individual changes (which you certainly haven't
done given timing of your review mails and complexity of changes)..
