Steps 3 and 4 should be to submit against whatever branch is appropriate
for the subsystem and driver - if people follow this process they're
going to get bounced back by a fair proportion of maintainers, -rc isn't
universally what people are looking for so people should be aware that
they need to pay attention here.

Generally I'd say the development version is a safer bet than -rc for
most subsystems.
