Stephen - thanks.

ARM guys, we need to be smarter about this stuff - if we're consolidating
code across the ARM tree, committing changes to files which we're going
to remove really isn't a good idea. It probably means something else has
changed elsewhere to accomodate the deletion of the file, which this
kind of resolution won't fix up.

It's a recipe for creating unnecessary build failures when these trees
get merged together.

It probably means that those two commits need to be postponed and
updated for the changes already queued by other people.
