We normally like some patches (especially new functionality) to sit in
linux-next for a while before the mering window (ideally starting with
-rc4 or -rc5). We are at -rc6 already, so getting close to the 3.17
merging window.

Another aspect is that the arm64/bpf branch depends on the net tree, so
it can't easily go in via the arm64 tree for 3.17 (3.18 would not be a
problem).
