No problem.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.  Do you want me to
rebase my other branches (including mvebu/boards)?

Sounds reasonable, I usually track that anyway.  In most situations,
though, I would just merge in mvebu/fixes to get the needed fix.  In
those scenarios, basing on -rc1 should be fine.  Only when a fix goes
through Russell's tree would it make sense to base off of the -rcX
containing the fix.

So, "Not too hot, not too cold, porridge that's just right" :-P
