Thanks. Well we can certainly manage if the first three commits did
not make it in during the -rc cycle. But assuming that we had valid
fixes, you could just do something like this too:

$ git checkout -b omap/fixes-for-rc
$ git reset --hard b8e111a74d281b70e88bd67fec48cfda4f9bdce2

Then merge all the -rc fixes for various ARM platforms with:

$ git checkout fixes-for-rc
$ git reset --hard v3.1-rc9
$ git merge omap/fixes-for-rc soc foo/fixes-for-rc bar/fixes-for-rc

And then no rebasing is needed. Of course I could also set up
a separate fixes-for-rc for that if you prefrer that :)
