Yes, the request to not always go with the latest -rc is new for this
release cycle, so we're generally not pushing back and enforcing it,
just asking nicely :)

However, since Kevin just got up to speed at the same time, he might
have been of the impression that it's something we've been asking for
in the past. :)

The reason for asking is that if we keep getting new and different
-rcs as bases for merge requests, the history starts to look like a
lot of merge-backs from upstream, when there's rarely a real need for
being based on such a new -rc.  Still, it's not a big deal, and we've
been doing it that way now for a couple of years, but I think we could
avoid some of it without causing anyone more work (once they're used
to it :).

Ah, I saw that there was a branch included from the zynq tree and
figured this was in it. I'll let Kevin handle the merge so it's up to
him if he prefers to rebase back or just merge it in with -rc5.
