I still see for-rc points to old (4.14) code.
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rdma/rdma.git/log/?h=k.o/for-rc

There is a need to advance -rc to be equal to -next during merge window,
so we will be able to actually base our -rc/-next patches.

There is no need to wait for -rc1 to send bug fixes and Linus accepts and
welcomes bug fixes during merge window, see the pull requests from Dave
and others.

I'll take a look, but most probably I'll skip the split exercise.

This patch set was tested as one series and separation will require
two addition passes for the verification: one for-rc and another for
for-next.

Thanks
