Ok, well I've just sent Linus a pull request for my changes so at least
drop the powerpc changes from your tree for the time being.

Right, it's the logical way to go

Which I understand, I would probably have done the same thing in your
shoes :-)

Sure, no objection, in fact I should/could probably update my new code
to use it as well.

Sure, in fact feel free to update my new code if you have more bandwidth
than I do, it should hit Linus tree soon hopefully unless he objects to
me having a second pull request this merge window...

I see no reason why not. I just haven't looked into it much, I admit,
being bogged down with a pile of new HW bringup in the lab etc...
