This is nowhere as bad as 4.8, but I'd like to point out the right way to
do it: prepare a topic branch with the arch/arm/include/asm patches, and merge
it into both the irqchip and KVM-ARM trees. You can find three examples in this
merge window alone:

Paolo Bonzini (12):
Merge branch 'x86/amd-avic' of git:// into HEAD

Paul Mackerras (8):
Merge branch 'kvm-ppc-infrastructure' into kvm-ppc-next

Christian Borntraeger (1):
Merge remote-tracking branch 'kvms390/s390forkvm' into kvms390next

So we can do better in 4.10. :)
