What would be the vetted subset? :)

Anyway, I have now dropped the following patches that were in the
5.15.3-rc tree:
bc9bbb81730e ("x86: Fix get_wchan() to support the ORC unwinder")
42a20f86dc19 ("sched: Add wrapper for get_wchan() to keep task blocked")
5d1ceb3969b6 ("x86: Fix __get_wchan() for !STACKTRACE")

And will push out another -rc release to let people test.

If there are any other commits I should have also dropped, please let me
know.

thanks,

greg k-h
