Just to avoid confusion: it's Michael's personal preference not to
process patches for the next version during freeze.  Other maintainers
do, and that's actually the project's policy:

Subject: QEMU Summit 2017: minutes
Message-ID: <address@hidden>

     * Problem 1: Contributors cannot get patches merged during freeze
       (bad experience)
     * Markus Armbruster: Problem 1 is solved if maintainers keep their own
       -next trees
     * Paolo Bonzini: Maintaining -next could slow down or create work for
       -freeze (e.g. who does backports)
     * Action: Maintainers mustn't tell submitters to go away just because
       we're in a release freeze (it's up to them whether they prefer to
       maintain a "-next" tree for their subsystem with patches queued for
       the following release, or track which patches they've accepted
       some other way)
     * We're not going to have an official project-wide "-next" tree, though

Michael, would queuing up patches in a -next branch really be too much
trouble for you?
