    He rarely if ever says "go." The kernel X is released, and people send
    pull requests to Linus for X+1. He typically merges immediately, but
    does not push out the first set of merges for a few days.

    The stuff pushed to Linus for kernel X+1 should have already been living
    in linux-next (libata-dev.git#NEXT, to us).

    Agreed mostly... I still want to push fixes even if for obscure hardware.
