Hello Andrew and Florian

Alright. I see your point. Though I am not really agree with it at this
situation, the next version of the mini-patchset will be sent with a
cover-letter as per maintainers request.

Meanwhile lets put aside this discussion and get back to the topic-related

comment on the second patch of v2 duet?
