I believe this patch is very urgent and must be reviewed and pushed
as soon as possible. If that's helpful, please consider splitting
it as a separate patch. If that's helpful please consider rebasing
it against the current master (because I believe that now it depends
on the other patches of the series) or even separating it from the
test cases. I believe you will want to backport it to some older
branches and the patch may not be easily applicable if it depends
on other patches.

I think that this new feature is so important that it deserves some
longer description. However, I don't have any proposal at the moment
and I will no longer complain if other people find this description
