Well Mike Snitzer is becoming a joint maintainer and this also requires
changes to the workflow so watch this space.

Most of the time the patches are decoupled from the rest of the tree
and the final linux-next kernel is the same regardless of where the
quilt tree is attached.  I maintain a single sequence of patches 
where the ones ready for upstream float up to the top and the
linux-next export is a by-product and not the primary output.

Anyway, like I say, we'll be changing things during the next couple of
cycles and we'll bear your suggestions in mind.
