Grr, that's the danger of trying to split changes which cross between
subsystems.  I hate todays fragmented nature of kernel development,
it's really a nightmare.

I'm not sure how this can be resolved now, I asked Dave Airlie to pull
the next set of patches which include the one adding the SAD helper;
he's probably already pulled that for -next, so to pull out just that
patch and try to get it merged into -rc is going to be far from nice,
and will probably introduce conflicts.
