It's merged, but in general the rule for "bake in -next" should be
absolutely everything.

The only exception is just pure and plain fixes.

This SafeSetID change should in fact have been there for two different
reasons: not only was it a new feature rather than a fix (in
linux-next just for testing), it was one that crossed subsystem
borders (should be in linux-next just for cross-subsystem testing). It
touched files that very much aren't touched by just you.

"Looks obvious" has nothing to do with avoiding linux-next.

I suspect most of the bugs we have tend to be in code that "looked
obvious" to somebody.
