Yep, I think the right thing, as you have just done, is to ask for clear
confirmation on revert, and accept whatever people say. I would revert
if anyone requests it.
To summarize how I see this patch, we have this workflow at the top of
the TODO list (which I think Simon helped with or suggested):
Desirability -> Design -> Implement -> Test -> Review -> Commit
I think the MERGE patch spent a long time getting through the first and
second stages, and now the objections appear to be related to
implementation. I think the implementation issues only appeared during the
final commitfest, which made it feel like a new patch. Yes, it had been
through the first two stages before the final commitfest.
I think one of the missing rules we have is that when we say no new
large patches in the final commitfest, do we mean that all _three_
stages should be solidified before the final commitfest? I have never
been clear on that point.
