So in other words, you are pushing patches that you did not even review
yourself. On the one hand, this wastes the time of reviewers, annoys them
and discourages further reviews. On the other hand, it makes the guy who
posted third party patches look stupid for not seeing the many problems
(while in truth, (s)he did not look at them).

I think reviewers deserve to not be presented with unreviewed stuff. We

This patches series has serious problems. I would not be surprised if the
current HLS code was crap as I did not review it - on purpose. But this
would make no difference.

If the current code is crap, you are free to fix or rewrite it. Kludging
it though will not yield anything good.
