Yes, that is the one. It is one of three remaining build errors
we get for ARM allyesconfig, and the other two also have fixes
on their way into 3.8.

The second and third attachment in your mail seem to contain identical
patches. I suggested a similar patch myself, but Rob thought his
version was nicer to give better build coverage. We only need either
Rob's patch or yours, but not both, as far as I can tell.
Olof can correct me, but I think we currently don't have any other
patches queued in arm-soc for 3.8 (after Linus announced he did
not want any of the less urgent ones), so I think it would be more
fitting if you send one of the patches to Linus, rather than having
an arm-soc pull request that only contains one patch in your domain.
