Or do like I do with Kumar for FSL stuff... his stuff gets pulled via my
tree but his tree is in linux-next as well. There's no reason not to do

That way, his next branch gets linux-next coverage whether it's in my
tree or not, and I pull when I put the final powerpc-next together,
which gives me a chance to do a quick vet "just in case" and sort out
any major conflict before it all goes to Linus.
