Mummy says stupid is as stupid does.  Sorry, but I'm putting you on a
kill list.  It's just not possible to discuss things with you. You're
the first person _ever_ to get this treatment in about 20 years of me
using the Internet.

If other people want to merge your patches to KVM, they are free to do so.
