The merge window is for the subsystem maintainers to send stuff to
Linus. That stuff must have already been in the linux-next tree for a
bit to test it out and ensure that it doesn't break anyone.
So that means that you need to get things to the subsystem maintainers a
week or so before the merge window opens up if you want to see it go
into the next kernel release.
And yes, this means the merge window for the staging tree for new
features is now closed. Only bugfixes will be accepted for .35 from now
on, but I can easily queue up stuff for .36, I just have to wait until
.35-rc1 is out before I can add it to my public tree for inclusion in
the linux-next tree.
Hope this explains things a bit better.
Yes, helped a lot :)
