Bernhard, i've created a new -tip topic for your changes: 
tip/sysfs/firmware-mmap. It is available at:

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/linux-2.6-tip.git sysfs/firmware-mmap

This will become a 2-commit topic branch once the dependent x86 bits are 
upstream. At that point Greg will be able to pull it from -tip and push 
it out via the sysfs tree.

I've added it to the tip/master integration rules to give it testing and 
to make sure any subsequent x86 changes stay in sync with the e820 API 
changes your patches required.
