If you do this, then probably

this would be net-next most likely.

If you do this first, I'd suggest you resend the series here after all
this has been merged. We're not in a rush since this won't make it for
the 5.8 merge window anyway. By the time the changes land Kees might've
applied my changes to his tree so you can rebase yours on top of it
relieving Kees from fixing up merge conflicts.

About your potential net and net-next changes. Just in case you don't
know - otherwise ignore this - please read and treat
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/netdev-FAQ.txt
as the gospel. Also note, that after this Sunday - assuming Linus
releases - net-next will be closed until the merge window is closed,
i.e. for _at least_ 2 weeks. After the merge window closes you can check
http://vger.kernel.org/~davem/net-next.html
which either has a picture saying "Come In We're Open" or a sign saying
"Sorry, We're Closed". Only send when the first sign is up or the wrath
of Dave might hit you. :)
