They are shared now just as often as before. Actually, more so. Remember the
days of my one big sys.patch where I'd have to spend a night trying to commit
the bits piecemeal? Contrast that with the way the MI pcpu stuff went in, or
the first round of changes to add td_ucred. I actually have cron jobs that
can generate updated diffs of the important p4 trees every 15 min or so but
don't have most of them on for fear of hurting freefall with the extra load.
You are asking for people to do more than they have done before and blaming
their not doing it on the tools they are using.
