I guess either is OK. The main thing is to get it all reviewed and
tested, after all.

I can take all the patches once it's all lined up and everyone is
happy. If the net bits later take significant damage then I can squirt them
at you once the core MM bits are merged. That would give you a few
days to check them over and get them into Linus. If that's a problem,
we can hold the net bits over for a cycle.

That's all assuming that the core MM parts are mergeable without the
net parts being merged. I trust that's the case!
