I encourage you to do the following:

* Ping your patches. However, flooding the list with pings will not help.
Please be respectful. Choose one patch and see it through to commit.

* Work to gather consensus from the interested parties. You should get
consensus from Dmitrieva Liubov, and the new machine maintainers
for x86; which are now Andreas, and myself.

* Assist in reviewing other patches, such that other reviewers are
freed up to review your patches. This will also help other developers
gain confidence in your abilities and build trust.

* Get involved in the effort to build a microbenchmark framework in glibc.
Siddhesh Poyarekar has started the effort here:
Your experience would really help. We need an integrated and
reproducible way to measure the performance impact of code changes.
