So you mean you're submitting me my patch that I've been avoiding merging
into mainline _without_ the fixup patch?  It seems not - you do have it
in your pull request:

	ARM: pgtable: Fix compiler warning in ioremap.c introduced by nopud

So what's the issue?  Why do you want to rewrite it yet again?

My guess is that you haven't actually READ what I said above (which is
quoted).  And what is quoted above is _me_ explaining _why_ I have not
merged my own patch and why _I_ _consider_ _the_ _patch_ _as_ _it_
_stands_ _to_ _not_ _be_ _immediately_ _suitable_ _for_ _merging_
___on___ ___its___ ___own___.

The fact is, with the "fix" patch, it _does_ become suitable for merging.

Are you getting the message yet?

Provided you've fixed the sign-off (which you say you have) the only
remaining problem is the conflict between your tree and Will's tree
which you actually require for LPAE to be buildable.  Which, I'll point
out, I'm not looking at at the moment because I'm writing this email to
you this evening instead.
