    Sad to see reliable re-clicking support for Nouveau isn't on the list.
    Personally, I would really love to see that!

    Lack of AMD UVD support is something that harms AMD, and in the coming months I might buy a new computer, and then AMD won't even be an option.
    Not gonna buy something thats not porno-compatible.

    Personally, I would like to see further ARM multi-platform work.
    Further improvements to the work that was introduced in version 3.7 of the Linux kernel.

    BFS won't be included unless someone reworks it to make it scalable. In its current state it doesn't scale well beyond 8 CPUs/cores.

    Reliable Nouveau Re-Clocking is the most sought feature on this list.

    Among features that are being actively blocked from inclusion you missed tuxonice. But this article is a pretty nice write-up nice out-of-tree features.
    Why mention not publically worked on stuff (UVD) is beyond me...

    Back in 2004 a lot of people would have said no one would have changed the O(1) scheduler, but then popular opinion turned against it.

    So, if those features are not in 3.9, whats the reason writing about?
    Seems you have a hard time meeting some secret goals of posting frequency you are trying to reach.
