Yes, that would be fine.

(There may well be some conflict: simplest might be if you can get that
pushed out to a stable public branch somewhere, hopefully before the
merge window opens, and that'll give me a chance to pull it and handle
any merge conflicts.

Then as long as your initial pull request goes in early (so that the
ext4 changes don't get sucked in with mine), everything works.)
