I've been straightforward and clear in why I reposted the patch set and why
I'm personally interested in the benchmark framework staying around.  I don't
see value in explaining it again.

I don't see how it serves anyone.  I don't see how it serves the community
to repost this rather than excluding this change, pushing this through, and
improving xfstests.  The resultant exchange of mail does nothing but to
litter everyone else's inbox.
