You're missing the point it's mot *my* submission, but someone elses, someone with enough
'geek cred' (being glibc/arm maintainer and more). So please point out where Phil has been
rude to explain for the 4.5 years of ignoring.

Personnally, I think it's very rude to go boasting about 'performance work' and asking
people to help and at the same time ignore patches when being pointed to. *that* is
unproductive. Calling for a profile is unproductive since none of the 'tools' (e.g.
theme-torturer) seems to work. Engaging in a discussion about something being unproductive
after it has been proven to be productive is hypocritical *and* unproductive.

A statement like "No need to be rude" would have been fine, and I would have apologized,
but saying "This is unproductive" is a) blatently false b) hypocritical. Saying "This is
unproductive, have a look a the Code of Conduct" is a godspe.

And even more scary: It apparently is a lot *less* work to keep patches private and update
them from time to time than to get them 'upstream'.
