You asked at 11:56:09PM +0000.
I replied at 19:33:34 -0500.
That's a delay of 37 minutes 25 seconds.
I even received my reply back from the mailing list server at
19:39:37 -0500 so hopefully you must have received it within the hour.
Granted, you merged my branch at 23:27:59 +0000 so I hadn't replied yet.

However, the commit says:

Merge: 742eaa6a6e 0af362f844
Author:     Russell King <rmk+kernel at arm.linux.org.uk>

    Merge branch 'vmalloc' of git://git.linaro.org/people/nico/linux into devel-stable

So the commit message is written as if you pulled my branch directly 
instead of a local branch, however my repo was already updated by that 
time.  In fact it was updated 2 days ago.  Strangely enough, you still 
have a version prior to that last update.

That's not a big problem.

Tony: could you please send your original patch directly to Russell with 
my ACK?
