Of course; the we-need-it-now-so-you-take-it-now attitude never gets
vendors or anyone else anywhere, so there's no reason to expect it would
work for OLPC either.  OLPC does not need, nor does any of us who work
on it ask for, special treatment.  Stuff will go through the correct
channels and will follow the normal kernel process.  That's all we can
expect, and that's all we ask.
