Well, I really need a request from the ongoing maintainer and also some
indication of which kernel release (if any) it is likely to be merged
into ...

As a general rule, I do not add trees to linux-next during the merge
window (there have been some special cases when something was going in
during that merge window).

I do note that the single commit in that tag has no Signed-off-by,
Reviewed-by or Acked-by tags at all. As such I can't see Linus merging
it as is. The commit message also has no detail at all. It is also
based on v4.5 which was only released yesterday.
