Maybe this isn't important, but:

I think the commit message should be changed -- this part of the series
doesn't remove EXPERIMENTAL, it removes the dependency on it from its
current users. The way the commit message is worded makes it sound like
the patch is going to remove MMC_CLKGATE, which of course it doesn't.

Ditto the subject line, could be ": remove use of CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL".

Regardless, for this and the subsequent [071] patch:

Acked-by: Chris Ball <cjb@xxxxxxxxxx>

(Let me know if you'd like me to take these, I don't mind who merges them.)
