a) There's nothing suitable to apply yet (need a v4 series)
b) The merge window opens this weekend (probably).
c) What's currently queued for 4.3 has been tested and no further tests
can be run until next week (when Boris or Konrad get back).

FWIW, "mm, xen/balloon: memory hotplug improvements" has also not been
queued for 4.3 for similar reasons (despite this series being ready 4
days ago and it having been more extensively tested inside XenServer).
