That linux-next is only for code that's ready for the next release

What would be nice is a single public repository that holds development
code that is not ready for the next release cycle, but is in a "working
state". Basically, one of your "not for inclusion" changes.

For those of us with test machines, it may be nice that we also perform
some testing, as Fengguang may not hit all permutations that others may
