Yeah, the VLA patches have been going through maintainer trees -- mostly due to needing specialized review, etc. While many are trivial, a fair number aren't (or at least the trade-offs aren't always obvious). > So if it would be a single-commit pull request, I'll just take it as a > patch.

Yeah, I'm in no rush to collect the "unresponded" VLA patches into a tree, and we've still got more to go, so right now it'd just be a single-patch pull. If you can snag it now, that'd be great! :) Thanks! -Kees -- Kees Cook Pixel Security
