Here's my view:

You mentioned that these patches were generated with some kind of awk/grep 
scripting.  Can you integrate that in an automated way into the 
autogeneration flow?  If the answer is yes, then keep the header.  If the 
answer is no, then the header should be dropped.  Benoît, maybe you have 
an opinion too?

As far as whether this should go in -rcX or not, my view is that, as a 
matter of policy, large changes like this should wait until v3.12.  Now, 
having written that, I also was under the impression that the OMAP5 
changes weren't going to be sent upstream unless the total diffstat would 
be balanced to roughly zero or negative lines.  As far as I know, that 
didn't happen.  So I guess, v3.11-rc it is...  kernel development by 
diffstat :-(

Finally, please repost the whole series once you're done with your 
changes, as a non-RFC, along with your pull request (if you plan to send 
one).  I guess I should be the one to take these, since I wound up taking 
the OMAP5 addition...
