I believe PATCH 1 was considered as being a fix, while the other
patches are adding a new feature, and it was too late in the cycle to
add them.

We were already November, 13th, that is 13th days late than the normal
-rc1 date, so I definitely support Peter in not having merged all the
possible pending features in 2013.11.

That's all what time-based releases are for: stopping merging new
features at some point, knowing that they will anyway be merged in
-next pretty soon and be part of the following release 3 months later.
