Please add my 'Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>' to this patch
once Thomas is ok with it. I think we had concluded already that it
was correct when we talked about it last time, but he doesn't seem
convinced yet so I want to wait for his reply.

You definitely need an Ack for all patches touching code outside of
arch/nios2, from the respective maintainers. For the nios2 code,
having as many acks as you can helps, and I should probably take
a last look so I can ack the pull request when you send it.
