Huh? Notification of potential patent infringements is encouraged and in 
fact effectively required by the LLVM Developer Policy:

    /When contributing code, *we expect contributors to notify us of*
    any potential for patent-related trouble with their changes
    (*including from third parties*)./


Jb Feldman is absolutely correct to bring this up.

To suppress contributors who are providing essential notification in an 
area they're work on is callous and ill advised.

These rules are here to protect those of us who have customers to 
support in the United States and once brought up, notifications must be 
heard by the community as required by the developer policy.
