But this doesn't make much sense either, because then full re-reviews
need to happen anyway on later versions, to also deal with the minor
issues. For RFC kind of series omitting style and alike feedback
certainly makes sense, but as soon as a patch is non-RFC, it should
be considered good to go in by the submitter.
