It does not make any sense to submit a patch for net-next and
also ask for it to be included in -stable.

First of all, -stable submissions are handled by me directly for
networking.  Therefore you should not CC: stable on such patches,
instead you ask me politly to include it in my stable submission
queue.

Second of all, if a patch is destined for stable, it should be
submitted for 'net' not 'net-next'.
