Why is new patches going into your tree right now, during the 3.4 merge
window? API changes should have happened weeks ago, to let others fix
up things like this.

As for the "where they are in development", they vary, but, a simple
grep should have shown you that these in-kernel drivers should also be
fixed up, or at the least, give me the heads up to let me do it for you.

Care to send me the patch that causes this problem so I can create a fix
for this?
