(I'm not trying to be aggressive, I just think that I misunderstand how this
part of the process works exactly).

I thought we can always edit -next trees? Why do we have to maintain fast forward
on them?

What happens, if for example you take a patch that causes build breakage? Would you
add a revert after that or just yank the commit out of the tree?

If you add a revert and leave the original broken commit in, wouldn't it cause issues
for anyone trying to bisect a build breakage?
