Hi Linus, Yeah this went wrong. My experience with anything Kconfig (whether new drivers or anything else) is that it takes 0day a few days to 1-2 weeks to crunch through all the combos. I guess we could block new drivers pulls like we already do with regular feature pulls in drm (e.g. drm-intel.git cuts out around -rc5/6-ish, drm-misc.git works similar), but delaying new drivers isn't that great.

Noralf has done good work (go look), Kconfig is an impossible combinatorial maze, and I'd be rather annoyed if you managed to drive away Noralf (and other contributors) with your mail. I know that you need to rage every once in a while, but at least only send those mails to Dave (and me) in private. On dri-devel here, this isn't accepted. We'll discuss late driver pull requests and what to with them in drm in the future more after -rc1, after the heat has dissipated.
