-tip I suspect. So my plan was the following, this series of yours:

[PATCH v3 0/4] sched,time: fix irq time accounting with nohz_idle

... looked almost ready, it looked like as if I could merge v4 once you sent it.

Plus Frederic submitted these two cleanups - looks like I could merge these on top
of your series and have them close to each other in the Git space.

And I do agree that we should keep these cleanups separate and not merge them into
patches that change functionality.

If your series is expected to be risky then we could make things easier to handle
later on if we switched around things and first made low-risk cleanups and then
any changes/fixes on top - do you think that's necessary in this case?
