Sure, provided it's also tested on non-x86 architectures as well.

At the moment, someone did a "clean up" of linux/tty.h includes
which has broken the 99% of the ARM defconfigs, and despite this
patch being in -mm and allegedly fixed by akpm for ARM, the result
is still massive breakage.

Hence, -mm is probably far too different from mainline for include
cleanups to be properly tested before they're sent to Linus - iow
they need an additional level of testing against Linus' tree _prior_
to being submitted to Linus.

Apart from that, I've no problem with anyone who wants to clean up
the include mess.
