Right now it is mostly a practical issue to me, as I applied the patch to
the devel (for-next) branch, then committed new development on top of

If I send it for fixes now the same patch will come in two ways as I
really do not like to rebase my tree at this point.

So I'd prefer to keep this for next and then have it tagged for stable as
v3.14 is released, if that is OK?


It's as simple as sending a mail to Greg once it's upstream.

I already though about how to tag every patch I send as Cc: stable, because almost any fix I send either goes through some -next or even -next-next or already is for some stable kernel.
(I usually don't even look at -rc kernels, just for some special things I'm waiting for, like this of-gpio for davinci.)
