I'm assuming that Linus' -rc kernels work for you, yes?

So, that suggests there's something in arm-soc which is breaking your
platforms, which means that you'll need to cook up a fix after or
during the next merge window.

You could instead cook that fix up _now_ before the merge window and
have it ready, _or_ send the fix to arm-soc or even report the regression
so that we don't end up with IXP4xx breaking at the next merge window.
