I think many of the kernel developers have fallen into the trap of only
listening to the distros on the assumption that if enough users want
something that they'll hear from RedHat or SuSE. Clearly this is
necessary to some extent, as the distros have to filter out the
actionable bug reports, etc., and works for 99% of what users want, but
the other 1% who use a specialized distro that does not have kernel
hackers on the payroll have a hard time getting heard.
But they will listen if people make enough noise on the mailing list.
