Linus, what's your feeling here ? I'd really like to have the bulk of
the powerpc updates this time around, they already missed the previous
merge window due to maintainers taking too long to deal with their
inbox :-)

KVM ppc is a big WIP with little if any users at this point so the risk
of breaking things is near to non-existent, it all boils down to making
our own life easier by having stuff not drifting out of tree (and making
it possible for distros to pick it up when they decide to do so).
