Yes, the conflict is trivial, but having seen several similar ones
this merge window, it's getting kinda old. Also, I'm not crazy about
having Linus see several merge conflicts to the same area. He'll see
that arm-soc folks are not properly coordinating things with Russell
and IMO that's something we need to fix in ARM land, not expose it to
Also, in the future, if you're already aware of merge conflicts in
-next in a branch you're submitting for a pull request, it would be
*very* helpful to mention that in the pull request.

OK, thanks for checking.

Seems this is an unrelated conflict to the one I was seeing in Kconfig.debug
