Your tree is set for linux-next inclusion. This means that, every day,
the current state of (one branch of) your tree makes it into that day's
linux-next. linux-next receives some testing so you may receive bug
reports that way (most frequently merge and build issues.)

But patches don't go from linux-next to Linus's upstream tree
automatically. Whenever you want your patches to actually go to Linus,
you must ask Linus explicitly to pull them.

So, when a build issue is found in linux-next, the right thing to do is
to blast the faulty branch and recreate it without the build breakage,
then have it go in at least one linux-next iterations to make sure you
did get things right this time, and only then ask Linus to pull from
your branch.
