That is actually about right for netdev. As i said, netdev moves fast,
review comments are expected within about 3 days. We also say don't
post a new version within 24 hours. So that gives you an idea of the

It is however good to let discussion reach some sort of conclusion,
but that also requires prompt discussion. And if that discussion is
not prompt, posting a new version is a way to kick reviewers into
