Relax :-) Our patches are tracked in Patchwork and such fixes aren't
necessarily constrained by the merge window. Michael will probably
pick it up but don't expect systematic replies to patches in 2 days ...

Also, when sending a series like that where one of us only gets
CCed on one of the patch, it helps to make it clear whether you
only expect an ack or whether you expect us to take the patch.

Cheers,
Ben.
