So currently the flow of patches is:

1) initially testing - acme tmp.perf/core
2) things staged for next release - acme perf/core (perhaps this
should be called perf-next)
3) linux wide next release testing - linux-next
4) release - linus/master

I wonder if there should be a perf-next-next branch to work around the
"sitting time" problem. Otherwise anybody who touches code in these 51
patches will create a merge conflict. Given the aggregation issues
we're likely to see changes in this code and so conflicts are likely
to happen.

The patch flow with perf-next-next would be:

1) initial testing - tmp.perf-next-next
2) things acquiring sitting time and where developers work - perf-next-next
3) things staged for the next release - perf-next
4) as 3 above
5) as 4 above

With linux-next picking up acme perf/core (aka perf-next) daily it
isn't clear whether we should work off of perf-core or linux-next as
they are so in sync. This process means we've lost a sitting place for
developer patches and we're going to feel the pain in terms of merge
conflicts on the list, difficulty building off of the latest work
without cherry-picking from the list, etc.

Thanks,
Ian
