That may be your view but from what I've read Ard has been very
constructive in pointing out issues in your submission. If your
response to criticism is to dismiss them as hostile then I'm afraid
that we will not be able to progress on this patch series.

Please keep in mind that this is a large project that has to support
multiple users on one hand (not just WireGuard) and complex hardware
acceleration drivers on the other. Ard has been one of the most
prolific contributors to the crypto code and his review should be
taken seriously.
