Sorry for not spotting this issue earlier, I missed Andy's second pull
request towards arm-soc and thought the SMD changes missed this cycle.

Your patch looks good, but I'm not sure how we should approach the merge
window; Andy can't pick the patch because he doesn't have the qrtr code
and David doesn't have the SMD patches coming through Andy.

FWIW, Reviewed-by: Bjorn Andersson <bjorn.andersson at>

I assume we could have the QRTR go through Andy and arm-soc, with
David's approval and this fix squashed in. But we're running rather late
in this cycle, perhaps we should just back the QRTR patches out and I
can respin and resend them after the merge window (for v4.8 instead)?

Suggestions are welcome.
