    One way of doing this would be to apply the patches to a branch in your
    tree which isn't merged into -next and request that architecture
    maintainers wishing to make use of the branch pull it into their trees.
    That way it'll go into -next with at least one user but multiple
    architectures can still work on using it in the initial merge.
