It really depends on what your patches change. For chipidea driver
changes, yes it's that branch. For mips-related bits, it's most probably
something else. For gadget, otg or phy patches, it's Felipe's tree. If
you get it wrong, normally it shouldn't be too much work to rebase your
patches onto a different tree, especially for the author of the
patches. In some cases I might do it for you, but you should be aware of
possible penalties [1]. :)

For the coming merge window I'm fixing and rebasing everything for
everybody anyway, so this time it's no big deal.
