Yep, I understand what you mean. I can't find the discussion from several
years ago, but developers asked to be able to work with more current
kernels, and I recall you saying that if you want to do this, merge to a
specific -rc tag at least.

I'm not personally fussed either way, and if anyone cc'd has an opinion,
please comment. Otherwise, I'll go back to merging to Linus only as
necessary.
