Thank you for the words of encouragement, but don't worry: I'm not going
to run away and hide just yet. :)  I was a bit discouraged about not
getting reviews for the more recent patch submissions, though, and I
hope I don't come across as bitter about that. Patch review is a lot of
work, and I definitely appreciate the comments I received earlier--I was
able to make many improvements as a result.

In any case, kernel development progresses, and I now have to update my
patches so they can apply to current git. The ball has rolled back into
my court of its own accord; perhaps the playing field isn't level. ;)
