If you have a stable branch on which I can rebase, I'm happy to do it
(I've just resolved these conflicts on -next). If it's more convenient
to do it later in the cycle, I can wait. Just let me know what is the
most convenient route for you.

While I perfectly understand how important it is to wait for maintainers
to ack the patches, these patches have been posted multiple times over
the past weeks/months, directly Cc-ing the relevant maintainers. Most of
them have contributed Acked-by/Tested-by. In a few cases, the patches
have fallen on deaf ears.
Are these platforms now unmaintained? At that point, I'd be quite
tempted to simply apply the patches and wait until someone screams back

Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
