I've just looked through the entire series once more and could not find
any show-stoppers. I consider this ready for 3.9, and I'm also quite happy
with Vineet's ARC port, although I think he is still integrating some
feedback comments.

I'd suggest that you both ask Stephen to add the trees to linux-next
now (I thought you had done that already, but I don't see them there
at the moment).

You don't need Acked-by statements on every single patch, but having
more of those is certainly benefitial. When it comes to the merge
window, please send a pull request to Linus, and keep me on Cc,
so I can weigh in with an additional Ack to the series.

Until then, maybe you can have another look at each other's architecture
trees (ARC and Meta). Since you are in exactly the same situation with
upstream integration now, you are probably the best people to review
the code, and you providing ACKs and constructive feedback to the other
tree will helps others see that you are up to the job as an arch
maintainer. I have also given a few comments to one of you that
may actually apply to the other one just as well, but I can't remember
now what I discussed with whom ;-)
