As we wait for the final patch in this series that fixes the mentioned 
bug above, I wanted to state something around regression here.

The patches that introduced the problem, were present in 3.11.0 itself, 
hence this is not a regression for 3.11.1

Delay to the release should be based on regressions, and blockers (think 
data corruption, cores, larger than sustainable breakage of code).

In this instance, I think we over reacted, and hence wanted to take the 
opportunity to point the same out (I should have done my work as well in 
checking when this problem was introduced etc. before delaying the release).

In the future, we would like to stick with the release calendar, as that 
is published and well known, than delay releases. Hence, when raising 
blockers for a release or delaying the release, expect more questions 
and diligence required around the same in the future.
