I'm a little disappoint you didn't CC someone MSM related on this. Your
patch is small enough that you can CC everyone effected. Here's
get_maintainer.pl output on it,

Russell King <linux at arm.linux.org.uk>
Anton Vorontsov <avorontsov at mvista.com>
Srinidhi Kasagar <srinidhi.kasagar at stericsson.com>
Linus Walleij <linus.walleij at stericsson.com>
Alessandro Rubini <rubini at unipv.it>
linux-arm-kernel at lists.infradead.org
linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org

At least those people should be getting this. Also, why can't you break
this up per sub-architecture ?
