I hope this isn't an indication of the quality of the ST Linux tree -
where patches are badly backported to some previous kernel version
without understanding what a delete/modify conflict actually is.

Several of the "new files" you introduce here are irrelevant to this
change, because they didn't exist when the change was made.  If they
don't exist, then they don't need to be patched, and so they shouldn't
be created by the patch!
