NOTE: When tempted to use multibyte bitfields on fixed-layout data,
you need to look in the mirror, ask yourself "what will they do to
me during code review for that?", shudder and decide that some
temptations are just not worth the pain.

The longer you queue stuff up, the more painful having to change
stuff at the beginning of that queue becomes. It can invalidate
everything else you worked on.
The only sane way to operate is to post your work early and often,
or else you'll live in a world of hurt, and it will be nobody's
fault but your own.

linux-next is not a tree that you can track. It's a tree that you
can fetch _once_ and then throw away.
So what you can do is to "fetch" linux-next, and test it. But you
MUST NEVER EVER use it for anything else. You can't do development
on it, you cannot rebase onto it, you can't do _anything_ with it.
-- Linus Torvalds
We get better regression tests from getting stuff upstream. However
upstreaming stuff to Linus is not how to find regressions, it helps
but its suboptimal in that he will eventually ignore us if the
regression rate gets too high.
