Yes, if you want to do kernel development, you always need to work off
of the subsystem tree that you are wanting to contribute to, or off of
linux-next. Development trees can often be 3 months ahead of Linus's
tree depending on the time of the merge window.

The tree should always be listed in the MAINTAINERS file for what one to
use.

hope this helps,
