Right, but that's at the OEM's discretion, for specific features
required by that OEM, and the OEM takes care of the testing. For
different OEMs, the patch sets will be different, I assume.

If we put all these different patch sets into 3.6, we effectively create
a new release without telling anyone, and possibly break things for
everybody who expects that 3.6 actually is bug-fixes only.
