Hm. Must be a hit or miss thing, then.

Well, it seems it is making the rounds in 2022. I have not received an email from Linux Kernel Mailing List <linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> (and neither the Virtual Box developers mailing list < > ) since sometime within Jan. 26, 2022, to the present; hence, I assume somebody (or some skiddie) unsubscribed me.

The last Jan. 26, 2022, email I sent to the list also included the reiser4 developer as an addressee -- as I have experienced some issues with newer kernels (and thought someone else might even provide a hint).

Apropos (off-topic, sorry, yet if this email makes it to the Linux kernel mailing list and other developers know him), I am somewhat concerned about Mr. Shiskin's well being -- as his continued Reiser4 work for the Linux kernel is appreciated by at least those of us who -- in stark contrast to 'the chosen ones' -- we do not pretend to be morally superior to judge and pontificate to others.

Last reiser4 patch (hack) that is working decently for me:

I will resubscribe to Linux Kernel Mailing List <linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>; unless, of course, I have been placed on a black list by the Penguins and/or their 'morally virtuous' govt/corporate overlords ;-)
