I've created an immutable branch (or, rather, immutable until the changes
reach mainline, at which point I will remove the branch) on top of v3.16-rc1
with just the three patches from this series. You can find it at.
Tony, is there still time to get this (and especially patch 2/3, which touches
arch/ code) in v3.17 ?
