And by "Stephen", Christoph means me. When you are ready, please send
me a request to include your tree/branch in linux-next (usually the
branch is called something like "for-next" or just "next") telling me
the git URL, and the contacts I should send email to if there are
conflicts/build issues with the branch. I will then fetch the branch
every time I create a new linux-next release (most work days), so all
you need to do is update that branch each time you are ready to publish
