As you can see in my follow-up to #72144, its wasn't all fixed, so your
contribution was still useful!

To avoid any overlap going forward, Are you aware of any further issues
with overloading that you still intend to work on?

As regards patches going unnoticed, this is more a reflection of the fact
that we as committers are a bit disorganised than any desire to ignore
your fixes. So please, please, keep the patches coming. If after a while
no-one has responded, then its ok to to follow up with a reminder (and
keep reminding if we keep ignoring you).

Note also that RT has recently been changed to flag patches as such, so
it should be easier for committers to locate them in future, viz:
