Obviously not.

You surely understand that both the kernel and the manpages are
available to you (Dell) free of charge.

If Dell provides these things under a commercial contract to customers,
then Dells customers surely can have expectations from Dell. But that's
none of my and any other contributors business.

If you need these changes ASAP, then either make them yourself or
contract someone who can do it for you.

Just making demands on a public mailing list in order to sort your
business problems is neither appropriate nor acceptable. You're neither
my boss nor do I have any contractual obligations with Dell.

You surely achieved something. The priority of this has moved right to
the bottom of my todo list. It's going to be worked on when I run out of
other things to fix or if I really get bored. Both won't happen anytime
soon.

Thanks,

        Thomas

2019-08-16  8:32 [PATCH] FS: timerfd: Fix unexpected return value of timerfd_read function. 'hrtimer_forward_now()' returns zero due to bigger backward time drift. This causes timerfd_read to return 0. As per man page, read on timerfd is not expected to return 0. This patch fixes this problem. Signed-off-by: Arul Jeniston <arul.jeniston@gmail.com> arul.jeniston
