I talked to Florian and he suggested me that I should send patches
directly to you. There could be some stuff shared with the other network
SoCs, there is nothing shared with the mobile SoCs.
We thought that it would be easier for us (Florian and me) if you pull
directly from me.

I just thought that I should base it on a recent -rc, so I took -rc4, I
can rebase it on rc1 if you like, I do not depend on any new stuff.

That would be nice.
