Ah, thanks.  usually, I just add the Cc: line for fixes I send to
arm-soc.  Since this patch affects more than just kirkwood/marvell, I
didn't feel it was appropriate to pull it in through my tree.

What I'm referring to is here:


I submitted a patch six months ago for the exact same thing and was
informed that others already had a pending patch in your queue for it.
However, I can't for the life of me locate the thread atm.  I remember
it because it was the first patch I did that needed to go into your
queue instead of through arm-soc.  Obviously, I did something horribly
wrong.  ;-)
