thanks for applying the patches.

Ok, I think a reason to update to -rc5 was a conflict in another patch
of my patch stack unrelated to this series. Wasn't aware of
backmerging conflicts you might get and will avoid unnecessary updates
in the future.

Will use arm at kernel.org in next requests.

I was hoping one or the other patch set would have applied earlier,
then I could have rebased them. Anyway, will do this now and let you
know after the merge window closed.

Fine with me.
