A process question that I could not find an answer to on the netdev FAQ.

With commit 98c41f04a67a ("ibmvnic: reduce wait for completion time")
the pre-requisites for the above patch are in the net tree but not yet
in net-next.

When net-next is open, does it get periodically rebased to net tree or
does the rebase happen only when net-next closes?

If latter, should I resend above patch based on net-next and handle a
manual merge during the rebase? (There is no functional dependence on
the pre-reqs - just needs a manual merge).
