So I still hope we can issue such a vote on these two patches if possible.
There are several ways we can do this:
* Jan and Tim can ask the other committers for an opinion (either publicly on 
the list - ideally related to this thread for traceability - or privately 
depending on preference) and one may change their opinion based on what the 
others say
* As there is also a potential risk element for the 4.5 release Jan/Tim could 
ask the Release Manager for an opinion too and take that into account
* Jan/Tim can ask the Project Lead (aka Keir) to make a decision : in other 
words as peers they both agree to disagree and ask Keir to act as referee.

Actually I don't think we need to go so far.  I'm happy to defer to Jan's
judgement on this; we ought to sort out RMRRs properly.


What's your last judgement?

Could we apply these two separate patches in advance? I think actually they aren't blocking the remains what we tried to do in another RFC series, but now we really need them to make sure GFX passthrough can work well.

For that RFC I have to take more time to cover all scenarios, so as you saw its really a slow process I can push forward.


My apologies for not following this thread closely enough; I hadn't
realised I was causing such a disagreement.  (In my defence I wasn't CC'd
until now.)
