Begrudgingly, I've applied this series.

Although I really wish you had included the mechanism for userland to
use the eBPF instructions alongside exporting them to userspace.

You kept saying "LLVM is the user" but that's a bullshit argument
because you aren't including the patches necessary to actually
propagate native eBPF programs into the kernel.

That's what, 1 or 2 patches, right?  Which is not an unreasonable

Anyways, I'm just extremely frustrated with how you operate and work,
you push things way too hard.  I hate to say this, but you are the
kind of submitter who gets his way by being persistent rather than
making well formed pleasant submissions that are easy to integrate.
