Ah, fair enough; as always the patch dates and the gitk chronology don't
match up since the patch dates are not always the same as their commit
date.  Any thoughts on the latest patches posted?  As I see it,
candidates for cherry-picking are:

[PATCH]: Add a D-BUS service activation configuration

[PATCH] restrict D-Bus interface to root only

[PATCH] honor explicit scan requests when disconnected

[PATCH] fix setting transmit key index with older orinoco/prism54 drivers
