It's safest to assume that this is a lossy communication channel: If
after a few days you haven't heard anything and the patch hasn't been
checked in, please send a follow up message. 

BTW: It's very helpful if the patch contains a good description of what
it does and the rational behind the design, either in the changelog or
in comments as appropriate. This save a lot of review time.

Further it would make our lives a lot easier if people at least checked
that patches build and work on both x86 and x86_64. Building with an
ia64 cross compiler would be good too, but I must admit that we don't
usually do this, though we'll probably have to once ia64 gets a larger
user community.
