I talked with Sylwester few days ago and we agreed on a shared mainainer
model.  Mostly because:
1. Only Sylwester from three of us works in Samsung,
2. It helps distributing the load in case of any holidays/travel etc,
3. It might also make easier for future transitions.

For this release I can start taking the patches. Please let me know:
1. Can I base on Torvalds' rc-1 or you prefer basing on top of your
   branches? In the second case your branches should not be rebased.
2. When do you expect pull requests (preferred time and acceptable late

Also, I will add this tree to the linux-next + auto-builders.
