What am I missing?

The "AUTOSEL" review cycle is an additional hurdle automatically
selected patches need to clear before being queued up. There are 7 days
between the day I sent the review for these and the first day I might
queue them up.

I guess this could benefit from being documented in
Documentation/process/stable-kernel-rules.rst? Or is this documented

This is not documented because it's not part of the -stable process,
it's just the way I currently handle AUTOSEL stuff. The timeline
requirement for -stable is:

"It or an equivalent fix must already exist in Linus' tree (upstream)"
