Thanks, pulled.

And btw - maybe I've already talked about this, but since next week is
(hopefully) going to be the last week of rc release: since the
networking pulls tend to be some of the bigger ones, one thing I've
asked David to do in the past is to (a) not send a big networking pull
request right before the final release and (b) let me know whether
there is anything worrisome going on in networking.

So if you send it on a Thursday (like this one), then that's all good
- it's the "Oh, it's Sunday noon, I was planning on a final release in
the afternoon, and I have a big networking fix pull request in my
mailbox" that I'd prefer to not see.

A heads up on the "Uhhuh - we have something bad going in the
networking tree" kind of situation you can obviously send at any time.
If there are known issues, I'll just make an rc8 - I prefer not to
_have_ to, of course, but I'd always much rather be safe than release
the final kernel just because I didn't know of some pending issue.

(And the reverse - just a note saying "everything looks fine, none of
this is scary and there's nothing pending that looks at all worrisome
either" - for the last rc pull is obviously also always appreciated,
but generally I'll assume that unless something else is said, we're in
good shape).
