I appreciate that. I was just surprised to have no advanced notice;
-next is our "canary in the coalmine." Mainline is usually pretty
stable; if it goes red then we're missing testing coverage somewhere.
For mainline to break suddenly implies that either a pull was merged
from a branch that wasn't flowing into -next, or someone got [un]lucky
with the merge window, or something worse. I saw -next failed the
same day as mainline for the same reason, so I'm going to give you the
benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to luck with timing of the merge
window.

In the future, please give patches more time to soak in -next. We
expect -next to be noisy, mainline not so much.
