I understand, thanks.

Yeah, apologies for the short memory.  I'll try to follow more closely
from now on!

If practical, it would be helpful to have any such documentation in the
final version of the patches, though, either as patch comments or (maybe
better in this case) as comments in the code or in Documentation/.  When
someone needs to go back and find out how this was all meant to work,
it'll be easier to find in the source tree or the git history than in
the mail archives.
