Ah, fair enough.

hmmm, yes.  I've been grappling with the semantics of '/urgent' vice
'/fixes'.  With mvebu, /fixes is the branch for all changes needing to go
into the current -rcX cycle.  For irqchip, Thomas suggested /urgent for
the equivalent branch.  To me, they serve the same purpose.
Unfortunately, I occasionally hear "Well, it's not _urgent_ ...".  I
suppose I'll put up with it for one more cycle and then change it to
/fixes. :)

wrt this patch, I need to drop it anyway.  I was a bit rusty (it's been
a few weeks) and forgot to add the Cc -stable and Fixes: tags.  I do
agree, though, it's certainly not urgent.

As Russell has raised more issues with this patch as well, I'll hold off
on re-applying until I see a new version.  Hopefully it'll meet with
everyones approval.
