In theory there shouldn't be any need to wait because the rules about
which patches go in first are very clear and predictable. First come
first serve. Unless a patch is rejected. And they are only rejected if
they violate some rule, but normally ok patches go in.

This patch is almost totally ok except it doesn't have "staging" in the
subject. I'm not sure if that's enough to reject it... Probably it's
ok and you should assume it will be merged.

The other reason that you don't need to wait is that this patch won't
conflict with the other patch you are proposing.
