That link doesn't work for me either, but I assume it is the
branch here:

I'll rebase my patches on top of this branch and send them to you
The conflict in -next came from Christoph's tree:

hence why I mentioned the uuid-types branch above. It's not clear to
how Andy's branch fits in with this.
I think Andy is preparing various uuid conversion in it and wanted to
make sure you don't do any work he already did or which conflicts with
this work.
Thanks, Christoph, that's correct.

For now please just base it on my uuid-types tree.
Yeah, this is safest option for now.


I have sent you the rebased patches. I took Christoph's uuid-types tree and added this patch onto it:

7bf130e4a065 ("ACPI/APEI: Handle GSIV and GPIO notification types")

And then added my patches onto that. This will hopefully now avoid conflicts with any other patch.


The patch that was causing compilation failures on your branch was:

22e31da efi: Switch to use new generic UUID API

The failures were because of the removed guid_t * casts. Note that this patch will conflict with my patch series, so you may want to rebase it onto linux-next once they are in.
