Thanks for taking time to responding anyway!

The reason I asked was that I was hoping the response would be that the
patchset had no know regressions, but still lacked testing. In that
case, I would have discussed its inclusion in our (Ubuntu's) alpha
releases with our kernel team, but if you feel you're on track already,
I'll stop annoying you. :)

Thanks for your time.
