Hi,

The explanation should be in the patch, not the cover letter.
Actually, you don't need a cover letter for a single patch.
Copying it here:
"
dpdk is fairly expensive to build in GitHub.

It's helpful to abandon old builds as soon as there's a new
build waiting instead of wasting resources on the previous
round.
"

The goal of the CI is to catch any issue in a submitted patch.
Is your change cancelling a test of a patch when another one is submitted?

If it's on the same branch or if it's in the same pull request yes,
otherwise, no.

We currently have a report on every patch, which helps us when a patch
series has a breaking failure in the middle and then fixes it in a later
patch.  With the mechanism you have here, we lose that ability - it is
important to have, as a `git bisect` can be broken without this feature.

How much of a problem is this in practice?  I want us to be good
citizens, but also I don't want to lose the bisect-ability of the
series.

Good point.

Bisectability is important.

So we have to reject this patch, right? Or any other idea?
