Should I pull them from there or will you send it to the ML?

We usually wait for the changes to hit a point release since the API is
set into stone at that point. But given that LTP is supposedly being
used to test the linux-next tree as well, we may reconsider that in the
future. If the test is correctly skipped on older kernels I wouldn't
mind including it earlier.
