Yeah - at least for larger changes that's a good workflow.

For smaller changes we can pick one or the other tree. Tejun, do these changes 
create any conflicts with the current tip:master tree? If not then you could carry 
these changes in your tree. If there's significant conflicts then it might be 
better to rebase this on top of perf/core and pull them into perf/core. (assuming 
there's no other cgroups prereq patches beyond the ones in this series.)
