Ok, that's acceptable to me, but realize that this puts a bigger burden
on the maintainers to queue up patches for you. It's not that big of a
deal, just something to be aware of.

Speaking of which, does this mean I shouldn't hit you with all of my
pending stuff? I know some of the other subsystem maintainers have a
lot of stuff queued up too. Should we start this new numbering scheme
as of today? Or wait until 2.6.13?
