He just rephrased me - http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg254618.html .

And still the patches didn't say how he did it and why is it safe/good to
do it the way he did it. That's, basically, code without commit messages,
which touches really sensitive parts. As I've said in the above link, it's
really hard to review them this way.
