There are 16 patches in the patch set, and the patches are against the
latest linux-next tree (linux 2.6.27-next-20081016).

You better don't base anything off linux-next. These are not stable: there
can be even something in the tree you mentioned which will never end
up in the mainline and if your patches depend on it they wont apply to
something like v2.6.26.2.

Definately, there's some d_obtain_alias stuff in linux-next which has been there since linux-2.6.27-rc4-next. I thought it would make it into the final 2.6.27 but it didn't.

I thought linux-next *was* the tree that new patches should be based off. However, the relationship between linux-2.6.git, linux-next.git, and the -mm patch series seems to be a little vague to me, not to mention where the linux-staging tree fits into all this.
