OK, just to be clear your tree should be based on Linus' tree (or some
other *stable*, non rebasing, tree - *not* linux-next).

[I guess your tree will fulfill all the following]

What I tell everyone: all patches/commits in the tree/series must
have been:

	posted to a relevant mailing list
	unit tested
	destined for the next merge window (or the current release)

*before* they are included.  The linux-next tree is for integration
testing and to lower the impact of conflicts between subsystems in the
next merge window.

Basically, this should be just what you would send to Linus (or ask him
to fetch).  It is allowed to be rebased if you deem it necessary.
