I have - FWIW, right now I'm going through the patch series for netdev;
once I'm done with turning commit messages into something printable
(and finish rereading the patches themselves), there it goes, hopefully
tonight.  Then a bunch of small branches + repost of csum one + some
of the weird shit (comedi compat ioctls - the largest pile of
__get_user() and __put_user() outside of arch/* is festering there).
Then regset stuff + (probably) resurrection of i915 stuff.

I've got a bunch of stuff around execve(), but that'll have to wait
until I get through the recently posted execve-related patchsets...

Then there's e.g. mempolicy compat stuff, etc., but I'd rather wait
for several days before posting that, reviewers' bandwidth being
