So, do I now take this email as you saying that _your_ LPAE tree is
not ready for merging because you want to rework this patch, or what?

Because you've decided to go down the path of reworking this patch,
I consider it dangerous for me to just pull from your tree again - I've
no idea what I'd get, and I've no idea whether what's there is what you
want me to merge.

So, this is causing extra delay, and there's nothing _I_ can do about
it at my end.

This is getting completely out of hand.

What I want from you - by 5pm tomorrow so I can get this stuff merged -
is a pull request for the LPAE stuff as it was in your v2 pull request,
either based on top of _either_ my devel-stable (if you can get it - as
the machine is having severe problems running git atm) or with Will's
idmap changes merged into it _before_ the LPAE changes.

I suspect you'll have to do the latter though, because I don't think I
can sort out git on the server at the moment.
