I originally did the create from the 2.6.33 release, and then did a
merge to test that it would be easy for you, but there were a number of
conflicts due to other trees touching some driver core stuff (that I
knew was going to happen.) So I did take a merge point after that had
happened, and did test it out here on my machines.

But hey, if you want to have to handle merge conflicts, I'll gladly base
them on known-common points in the future :)

In the future I'll try to pick better merge points.
