Dave queues up and sends me the stable backports for networking code, as
the document states.  If there is a special series needed for 4.19, I'm
sure he would be glad to take them.  Or, I can take them directly, after
I have the 5.0 series queued up, if I get an ack from him.

But to seemingly circumvent the normal process, isn't ok, I need to know
that at least you tried :)
