I am not sure whether we have any improvements on this front. I still
see patches are waiting for ages to get their turn for the regression
run and hence delaying merges and effecting the release process.

I still feel we don't need to wait for NetBSD's vote for merging patches
on a temporary basis till we fix the infrastructure problem. This is the
only quick solution which I can think of now.
