FWIW, my plan was to send the hwmon patches first, by then my other
series (the polynomial_calc() one) will also be ready to be picked.
Then I'd ask Guenter for a stable branch with these two series which
hopefully get merged into net-next. Then I can repost the missing
patches on net-next along with the new sensors support for the GPY
and LAN8814 PHYs.

For the last patch, if it should be applied or not, or when, that
will be up to Guenter then.
