Hm?  No, right now it's identical with the master branch, too.

Actually I have a separate branch on my git tree.  The master is for
mm tree and for-linus is for Linus.  The appropriate patches are
copied (and rebased) to for-linus branch once after the merge window
is opened.  So, it's no no problem at all to have patches that are
only for mm.

Well, Andrew prefers patches merged into the subsystem tree, so it's
better to just mail me as before.  Then we have one more review

My previous comment was about the patch that affects several subsystem
/ arch changes.  In this case, the change isn't only in the subsystem
tree.  So, we'd need to cope with others anyway.  Keeping such a patch
in mm tree separately is one option.
