Hey Folks,

Sorry for any confusion, let me try again.

In preparation for the new userspace release, are there any outstanding
userspace patches that should be marked as critical and hold up the new
userspace release?

Code shared by userspace and kernelspace are committed by different
maintainers, I propose we discuss how to make it clear which patch
series are tied together. This would aid reviewers and testers also.

        One thought is to state in the kernel [PATCH 0/XX] email body
        something like:
                This kernel series shares the same headers as the
                userspace series "NAME OF USERSPACE SERIES"

        and a similar email for the userspace series.

        The second commit should contain the first series commit id to
        tie them together.

Userspace patch series will be committed when the entire patch series has been reviewed. Partial series commits will happen only with the authors approval (confirmation posted to the list).
