Does this mean that the nature of linux-next is changing? I thought
the whole point of linux-next was only to have what would be pushed to
Linus in the near future, so we could check for patch compatibility
issues. For that reason, for example, I don't push the unstable set
of patches in the ext4 tree to linux-next, since they aren't ready for
merging yet in their current form.
But if linux-staging is going to be pushed to linux-next, doesn't that
violate the ground rules of Linux-next? Or are we allowing in this
case because these are filesystems and/or device drivers that don't
exist at all in the mainline tree yet?
