I'll let Stefan comment on the state of the patches. The last I heard
(a couple of days ago) was that there were still more to be sent (I
haven't been closely following Stefan's great upstreaming work).  The
Haswell development has had some churn mainly from experimenting with
some implementations of certain things. There's also probably more
patches that look like fix-up patches coming. So that doesn't really
answer your question. Sorry. It sounds like you'd rather see a big
Haswell patch that is our current development?

Sorry for the churn.
