This is also true for linux-next.

I just have one request: instead of calling it for-linux-2.6.27, call it
for-next. The when the merge window opens rename it to for-linus or
current or something and reset for-next to where you want to start
collecting stuff for 2.6.28. That way you don't have to keep telling me
where the tree I fetch into linux-next is.
