I think git will deal with a merge between branches containing
the move vs fix, so it should work either way.

A downside of having the move in net-next would be that
you'd get trivial fixes send to Greg, but him being unable to
apply them to his tree because the code is elsewhere.

If you think it helps, I could prepare a pull request with this one
patch (and probably the bugfix I sent first that triggered it), and
then you can both merge the branch into net-next as well
as staging-next.
