Wow, that's a lot.

Yes, but still, your list looks correct.

New device ids are something trivial which I mark for stable, but
usually hold off on submitting this late in the release cycle as it just
takes up time for everyone involved and they aren't a big deal.

Others in my tree are stuff that are "nice to have" but not essencial
for .37 at all for this point in time.

Then there's the wireless tree, which always loves to tag stuff and then
provide backports, but they want the stuff tested in Linus's tree first,
which is fine, so it waits for the next release.

thanks for the list,

greg k-h
