TIL: Linux kernel hackers should check linux-next

If you are new to linux kernel hacking and following along with one of the tutorials, something that is not mentioned as far as I can tell is that you should check the linux-next branch of the git tree to see if something you are going to fix is already fixed. The commands to add this tree to a checked out copy of Linus’ are:

git remote add linux-next git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/sfr/linux-next.git
git fetch linux-next
git fetch --tags linux-next
git remote update
