The branch was created and the first patch was applied quite a while ago.  The second patch is relatively new but very straightforward.  I rebased the branch to -rc7 just before sending the pull request thinking it would be easier for you to merge.  If that is not a preferred action, I will not do that again in the future.

My tree is not being merged by the Linux-next right now.  So you think we should ask Linux-next to add my tree too?

I know the pull request is coming a little bit late.  But the two small patches are really simple and straightforward.  They are not technically a fix but it will be really helpful if you can take it in this merge window.  And going forward, what is your preferred time frame to send pull request to for-next?
