Which was repeatedly mentioned as a major pain point. While we can make
specific exceptions there should be a good rationale behind such efforts.

If distribution add features as patches, that can very well reduce the
incentive for the developers to ever push for upstream inclusion. The
original developers would have to be interested in merging and
maintaining it within the kernel. It would be much better to get the
discussion going in the linux kernel mailing list.
