- Answer #1
  You rework the fix against -net so that it can be fed into -stable asap
  (your customers use -stable or derivative kernels, don't they ?). You
  rework the feature part against your modified -net vs -net-next merge
  and you carry it until -net gets merged.

- Answer #2
  You wait until David merges -net into -net-next again.

If you don't read netdev regularly (!), you should read
