That's something I wrote 9 years ago :)

Anyway, yes, linux-next is usually the right place to work off of, but
it lags my staging.git tree usually by at least a day, maybe two,
depending on when I push and when -next picks my tree up. Also there is
the lag of the weekend when -next is not being generated.

Normally that is fine, except for when working on code that is "fast
moving". This driver has had lots of submissions against it lately as
there are loads of "low hanging fruit" that people easily see to fix up.
Look at the mailing list archives for this week alone for all of those

When working on something that lots of other people are working on, pay
attention to the patches on the mailing list and work off of my
staging.git tree, usually the staging-next branch, but sometimes
staging-testing is needed if lots of patches are being sent rapidly.

Look at my staging-next branch in staging.git. It's long-gone :)
