    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.
