Maybe you have misunderstood the point of linux-next (is is an
integration testing tree, not a development tree)?  I am wondering if, in
particular, the clk-3.x branch (or something near that) may be more
appropriate for linux-next inclusion (and maybe the clk-fixes branch in
my "fixes to the current release" section)?

This is what I tell everyone:

You will need to ensure that the commits in your tree have been:
     * submitted under GPL v2 (or later) and include the Contributor's
     * posted to the relevant mailing list,
     * reviewed by you (or another maintainer of your subsystem tree),
     * successfully unit tested, and 
     * destined for the current or next Linux merge window.

Basically, this should be just what you would send to Linus (or ask him
to fetch).  It is allowed to be rebased if you deem it necessary.
