Bah, this is what Linus said not to do. Although he's more about not
having this happen in a single merge window, but this isn't the "git

There should be no problem in pushing the patch based off of Linus's
tree and have it be pulled into two branches. This is what Linus said he
wanted. The change will go in via one of the branches, whichever is
pulled first. And as the change will have the same SHA1 in both
branches, git will merge it nicely. This is what Linus said at kernel
summit that he wants people to do.

Note, this will also get into -next and -fengguang's tree as well,
without issue.
