Again I have to apologize for posting those patches to a
publically accessible branch before I had made sure they
survive autobuild fine. I had asked for comments, not for
them getting pushed. Sorry that I was not making that clear
enough in my request for comments/review.

I will be fine with it if comes as part of the general rule
I proposed a while ago that you can't push your own patches.
Making an exception for a revert does not make sense.
Technically, I did not do reverts not to blow up commit
count unnecessarily, I created a new patch that undoes the
changes. This code was not ready as I posted it, and it did
cause severe problems for Andrew. So the only sane thing was
to pull them as quickly as autobuild would allow it. This
way Andrew was no longer blocked in his work.
