As expressed at the time already, I view this reverting you did, without
there being any emergency and without you having gathered any acks or
allowed for objections, as overstepping your competencies. I did post a
patch to the XTF test, which I believe is wrong, without having had any
feedback there either. Unless I hear back by the end of this week with
substantial arguments of why I am wrong (which would need to also cover
the fact that an issue was found with 32-bit PAE only, in turn supporting
my view on the overall state), I intend to revert your revert early next
week.
