Yes I did at the time, but things change.  Since you've been totally silent
on the merge conflicts between your PCMCIA tree and my tree which SFR
reported on December 1st:

| Hi Dominik,
| Today's linux-next merge of the pcmcia tree got a conflict in
| drivers/pcmcia/sa1100_h3600.c between commit
| 6ce8f65e71f0d80ee23b543be09789dd865a99be ("ARM: 5811/1: pcmcia: convert
| sa1100_h3600 driver to gpiolib") from the arm tree and commit
| 66024db57d5b9011e274b314affad68f370c0d6f ("PCMCIA: stop duplicating
| pci_irq in soc_pcmcia_socket") from the pcmcia tree.
| I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary.  Please

To which there was this reply:
| Fix looks good to me, and testing next-20091201 on real device (h3600)
| shows no problems with pcmcia.
| Perhaps this merge conflict can be avoided by merging Russell's PCMCIA
| patches through arm tree. But, anyway, it's Russell and Dominik
| to decide.

And a reply from me agreeing that it would probably make more sense in
light of this for my patches to go through my tree.

This is no longer possible, so I'm going to kick out the conflicting code
for the time being.  The conflicting stuff can be merged at some later
date once this kind of issue is solved.
