That is good practice and usually enough.  In this case it seems
reviewers didn't act for some time and I guess it was because they
were waiting for the other reviewers (deadlock).

If you identify the person who needs to take the next action by
including their name in the ping or keeping the CC list small, then
deadlock is unlikely.

It's just a suggestion that I think will help because I noticed this
patch (and other COLO patches) sometimes don't receive review comments
for a long time.
