I heared that David Daney's acpi numa patch series was accepted and put into next branch(Linux 4.8).
Otherwise I will suggest him sending his patch6-7 to mainline first. So that, only a very small conflict
will be exist.

I also tested that:
1. git am David Daney's patch6-7, then git am all of my patches on a branch, named branch A.
2. git am David Daney's patch6-7 on another branch, named branch B.
3. when I git merge B into branch A, it's still conflict. So I guess git merge is based on source code, rather than patches.

So at present, unless the maintainers are willing to resolve the conflict, otherwise I update my patches will not work.

Fortunately, these patches are not particularly urgent. So I think I can wait until Linux 4.8 start, then send these patches again.
But I'm not sure whether these patches can be merged into Linux 4.8, I really hope.
