Yes, I'm aware of that :).

Rich was normally the one maintaining the SH tree and collecting the patches,
not sure whether he is still active. It's been a while since he sent Linus
a pull request.

Sato-san was recently a patch himself, but I think he doesn't have a tree

@Sato: Could you have a look at the patch and ack it if it's okay?

I'm fine with that. If you need to test build the kernel for SH, Debian
has an easily installable cross-compiler for SH and every other architecture
except ia64 (working on fixing that) available.

In any case, thanks for taking care of SH in this case.
