Please, explain this reference. :-)

Testing allmodconfig for a popular architecture, agreed, it is due
diligence to avoid messing -next that day.

Testing a matrix of configs * arches * gcc/clang * compiler versions?
No, sorry, that is what CI/-next/-rcs are for and that is where the
"if nobody complains" comes from.

If you think building a set of code for a given arch/config/etc. is
particularly important, then it is _your_ responsibility to build it
once in a while in -next (as you have done). If it is not that
important, somebody will speak up in one -rc. If not, is anyone
actually building that code at all?

Otherwise, changing core/shared code would be impossible. Please don't
blame the author for making a sensible change that will improve code
quality for everyone.

I'm not ignoring the report, quite the opposite. I am trying to
understand why you think reverting is needed for something that has
been more than a week in -next without any major breakage and still
has a long road to v5.11.
