Yes it is. If a set of commits breaks other functionality, those patches
should either be fixed or reverted. That's how Linux kernel is maintained.

There's nothing wrong in reverting a set of patches, asking the author to fix
them, and applying a fixed version later on.

This gives the tree maintainer some options to keep the master branch in
releasable state.
