No need for a signed tag, since we're not going to submit you changes
upstream. Knowing that we can pull in the for-next branch is good enough,
so we'll do that for anything that needs it.

No strong preference on my side. I've seen both ways getting done.
In arm-soc we try to do a 'git pull --log --no-ff' for all changes
that are being pulled into one of the main next/* branches, just
like torvalds does when he pulls in branches from maintainers.
