If some patches come in the late phase of a release cycle and is not
eligible for current release from my perspective (eg: a big feature,
or a small patch but impacts many sub-domains), I will use a next
branch, and do the rebase on u-boot/master periodically. The master
branch is set to always tracking the upstream u-boot/master.
