That is exactly the situation. The changes have been stuck since
In fact, what is needed is not the patches being looked at. They need
to be committed. Anything reasonable that might be done to prove they
were right has already been done.
Waiting for the existing maintainers to review these changes is not
reasonable, if for no other reason than that they have had 6 months to
do so and have done nothing.
