you say a lot of things i never said, so forgive me if i save time by not quoting every
sentence of yours again ;). i thought i was quite clear already but let me spell it out again:
1. there's no problem with commits not telling the whole truth if noone was the wiser at the
time of the commit.
2. there *is* however a problem with commits where the impact of the bug fixed by said commit
is known *yet* it's not mentioned at all or cleverly worded so that noone will notice it by
just glancing at the commit looking for keywords.
the second commit i cited falls into category 2 (and we have yet to see the story of the first
one, not that there was any shortage of them i could have cited) and what i expect from the
kernel devs is to stop contributing to that category.
