Oh sorry, I guess you didn't see that. The simple time namespace fixes
didn't make it into -next because I missed to merge them into my
for-next branch when I took them. I did mention it in the
time-namespace-v5.11 pull-request in the /* Testing */ section but
apparently this wasn't prominent enough.

"Please note that I missed to merge these fixes into my for-next branch and so
linux-next has not contained the commits in this pr.
I'm still sending this pr because these are fairly trivial bugfixes and have
seen vetting from multiple people. I have also now merged this tag into my
for-next branch so these commits will show up in linux-next soon. If you feel
more comfortable with this sitting in linux-next for a while please just ignore
this pr and I'll resend after rc1 has been released."

Hm, I did pull linux-next 20201214 and then did a pull from my tag. And
as usual I always do a test-pull based on v5.* releaste tag and they
didn't show any merge conflicts.

No, this was definitely my fault. I'll try to make sure this won't
repeat. Thanks for still pulling.
