Agreed, sorry about that, I will talk to Kevin to make sure I am able
to run kernelci tests on branches aimed at upstreaming from now onwards.

Thanks, I will talk to Daniel for the PSCI CPUidle patches, but I think
they will have to wait, let's merge this drivers/psci2 branch and I will
rebase the patches going via other trees at -rc1 for the next merge window.
Thanks a lot,
