I have a separate tree that I use for sending net patches. I generally
write my patches against linux-next and then postpone sending them until
the next day.

Then I open my patch in mutt.
cd tmp_tree/
../switch_to_net.sh
cat /var/tmp/mutt-speke-1000-511162-9994856746594827871 | patch -p1 --dry-run
If that applies then I "net" to the subject. Otherwise I do a
`../switch_to_net-next.sh` verify it applies and send that.

Once in a while I will have to modify my patches to apply cleanly
against the net tree.

It's a pain in the butt and I get it wrong disappointingly often. I
only do it for networking. Not for linux-wireless. There is another
tree where they complain if you don't add a tree to their patches but I
forget what it is... (I don't use the process for them, only for
networking).

regards,
dan carpenter
