To be clear here: "fast-forward stable to dev" means

	git checkout stable
	git merge --ff-only dev


	git push gerrit dev:stable

Since dev was tested and passed CI, there's no need to retest. This operation 
is as atomic as creating a new branch. In fact, it requires less effort because 
there's no need to set up new CI rules or to retarget older stable fixes.
