I consider all patches for the stable branch. [STABLE] is just a hint as far as I'm concerned. If a set of patches are too difficult to apply to the stable branch, I reserve the right to bounce the series, even for trunk, asking for two submissions but then again, if this ever happened, it suggests that either we need a new release (because things have changed too much since the last release) or that the patch probably shouldn't be in stable.
