My expectation is that people develop against my next branch, per the 
documentation here:

What we agreed to recently is that I'll sync to Linus' releases, as 
several devlopers need/want to work with more recent kernels.  I had been 
only syncing to Linus as necessary (e.g. to get in sync with say the 
mainline modules code for key subsystem updates).

It's possible I missed something in the threads and we have a 
misunderstanding about this process.
