Just to be clear here, the *only* issue we should even be discussing
is whether the patch should or should not have been committed in the
face of those objections. As Josh has also noted, the commitfest
process was never meant to constrain what committers do or when they
do it with their own patches or ones they've worked heavily on. They
are there as a backstop to make sure that regardless of what the
committers are doing day to day, patch authors know that their patch
is expected to receive some review within N weeks.
