Sorry, it was merged there by mistake. I had to apply that quick hack
to be able check if everything was ok on my tree before pushing it
upstream (as I do my tests with W=1). Without that hack, it is almost
impossible to see anything at the compilation logs, as it generates
hundreds of warnings like:

In file included from include/linux/i2c.h:31:0,
from drivers/staging/media/go7007/go7007-fw.c:31:
include/linux/sched.h:875:25: warning: type qualifiers ignored on function return type [-Wignored-qualifiers]
static inline const int cpu_smt_flags(void)
include/linux/sched.h:882:25: warning: type qualifiers ignored on function return type [-Wignored-qualifiers]
static inline const int cpu_core_flags(void)
include/linux/sched.h:1002:21: warning: type qualifiers ignored on function return type [-Wignored-qualifiers]
typedef const int (*sched_domain_flags_f)(void);

even when compiling just drivers/media and drivers/staging/media.

Do you know if/when this patch will be merged upstream? It doesn't
seem to be at 2.6.16-rc5. Otherwise, I'll likely cherry-pick it on
my trees, as the lack of this fixup is making hard for me to check
if a media tree patch isn't introducing new warnings.
