It's not fixes. I suppose my tagging strategy helps to create confusion. The tag
is v5.7-*next*, which relates to v5.8 (next version after v5.7). Maybe not the

So I took the series through my branch and Chun-Kuang merged a stable tag in his
branch so that he can take commits on top of this changes.

Maybe the explanation comes too late, but I just wanted to clarify.
