I was waiting to see how the discussion proceeds. Was also expecting
various changelog updates (at least) - more acks from driver
developers, additional pointers to client driver patchsets, description
of their readiness, etc.
Today I discover that Alex has cherrypicked "mm/hmm: use reference
counting for HMM struct" into a tree which is fed into linux-next which
rather messes things up from my end and makes it hard to feed a
(possibly modified version of) that into Linus.
So I think I'll throw up my hands, drop them all and shall await
