You've actually asked around the same time in the cycle as you asked last
time, and I gave more or less the same reply back then. Nothing's really
changed. There is no way in hell that I'm committing any kind of
mach-types update _during_ a merge window.
The only time that I'd consider doing that is _outside_ of a merge window
in preparation for the _next_ merge window, and having it sit in linux-next
for a decent amount of time so that people can see it coming, and deal with
the implications of that update. I'd say a minimum of a month in linux-next
is required to avoid problems with people on vacations and the like.
