Well, I've been thinking about it: handling huge patchsets is always
very cumbersome, time-consuming and error prone. So perhaps it would be
easier - maybe - I'm not saying it will definitely but only maybe - if
you would split the patchset into, say, two, pieces, or halves, if you

And I think the first piece is more or less reviewed and if tip guys
don't find any booboos, it could go in now. Which would free you to deal
with the other half later.

Anyway, this is just an idea - it might not work but it is still worth
