The name from the Next/Trees file in any linux-next release. You should
be very careful doing this if you don't control the other tree, though.
And you should let me know so that I can order the trees appropriately.

This was mainly added for Greg who has 4 quilt series in linux-next that
depend on each other. If you depend on some random tree that changes day
to day your quilt series may no longer apply cleanly on top of it.
