I'm not sure this is even intended for 3.15 either ;-)

I'm fine with waiting, to keep from adding any extra pain just before a
merge window. I guess the question is, is it OK to keep it in
linux-next for 3.15 even though it may not even go into 3.15? Depends
on how useful it proves to be. Perhaps it may require staying in
linux-next till 3.16.

Perhaps in order to keep merge windows from being an issue, I can add it
at each -rc1, and remove it at -rc6, if it didn't catch any bugs. But as
soon as it does catch a bug, we can say it's worth going into mainline.

Does that sound fine with you?
