-rc6 is most likely released on Sunday, I cannot send six patches this
late in the cycle unless our inboxes are filling of bug reports. As my
inbox seems to be pretty empty about rtlwifi problems can you give more
background why you think it's important to get these to 3.19? Are these
all regressions from 3.18 or older bugs which just got fixed now?

I think this is ok.

Ad-Hoc mode is not that popular, IMHO this can easily wait for -next.

For -rc1 or -rc2 these would have been ok, but without really good
justifications getting these into -rc7 is difficult.

But the patches itself are create, huge improvement compared to v1.
