No, it makes sense to get this stuff via a single tree all together,
because, as you can see from the thread structure, it isn't purely
an OMAP thing.

The OMAP stuff depends on a core set, as does a bunch of PL08x and
SA11x0 changes.  We can't stuff all that through the OMAP tree, that
wouldn't make any sense.

What probably should happen is that the tip of the OMAP stuff gets
pulled by Tony into his tree, and we share those commits between my
tree and his - and then it doesn't matter what goes in when and by
