I mean the window between when we have staged patches and when they go into Greg's branch.

We don't have any now, maybe those two trival ones.

There are no outstanding fixes so all changes would go to -next.

There are basic git am ... applying problems.

By having a -testing branch it is easier to see where the conficts with all the outstanding patchsets.
