Thanks for this clarification, Linus!
Stephen, please find the tree here:
It is the fork from 5.14-rc5 tag with ntfs3 patches applied.
Also, the latest changes
- fix some generic/XYZ xfstests, which were discussed
with Theodore, Darrick and others
- updates the MAINTAINERS with mailing list (also added to CC here) and scm tree link.

Please let me know if additional changes requred to get fetched into linux-next.
