Hi Stephen,

I'll be transitioning in to maintain device mapper (for 3.12).  Alasdair
will be helping me as needed but ultimately the plan is for me to be the
one sending DM changes upstream in the future.  I will maintain a
kernel.org git tree with a 'for-next' branch for you to pull.  I'll
likely base my for-next on Jens' for-next as a rule (unless that isn't
ideal on a linux-next process level).

There will be a learning curve for me initially on how to interface with
linux-next, proper git rebase protocol relative to Linus' ideals, etc
but I hope to cut through that quickly.

Regards,
Mike
