I don't think you should hold back from merging with mainline just
because of stability problems. If you are mostly working except for
some small, hard to find problems, then get it merged, tell everybody
about the problems, and let people go hunt for them. That is what
the open source process is about.
From what I can see, you are ready to go start the merging process
