Me too.

Linus' merge window opened on Monday 1-10-2012.  One week before that
was Monday 24-09-2012, which is the nominal close of my merge window.

The patches were sent on 21-09 (Friday for you, the weekend my time).

If I had nothing else to do on Monday, I would have applied it, but we
spent the week trying to get the module signing patches into shape :(

If I take them now, they need to go through linux-next.  That won't
happen until Monday.  I want two days in linux-next, so that people who
test linux-next get a chance to find issues, so that's Wednesday before
I send to Linus, which is getting very late into the merge window.

And keep adding two days for every trivial issue which is found :(

It's in my modules-wip branch for 3.8.

Cheers,
Rusty.
