That's fine if there are no interdependencies. It looks like 74df956
will be a problem though.

The other two options are:

- I'll add my signoff to the commits that lack it. This unbreaks the
committer lacks signoff.
- I remove Alex's commits, Alex sends me a pull request based on that
tree, I pull it in. Alex being away for three weeks is a minor flaw in
this plan.
- As above, but with you sending me that tree as temporary kvm-ppc

Options 2/3 are harder as there are a few interdependencies.

Linus, if the first option is acceptable, a tree is available at the
same place:

git:// kvm-updates/3.4

otherwise, please provide guidance.
