Sorry Kees.

However, even if I had looked at it, I would /not/ have been able to
pull it. It does the absolutely fatal thing for any pull request:

The following changes since commit cc31d8f887953e9824c4d9333b15c335ee7d1b65:

Merge branches 'fiq' (early part), 'fixes' and 'misc' into for-next (2014-09-2+6 14:40:19 +0100)

That commit is on my "for-next" branch. The clue is in the name. :)
Just like trying to base commits onto the linux-next tree, trying to
base commits on an aggregate branch intended for linux-next usage
doesn't work for all the same reasons.

The commit which ultimately ended up being merged was:

Merge branches 'fiq' (early part), 'fixes', 'l2c' (early part) and 'misc' into for-next

compared to the one you based on:

commit cc31d8f887953e9824c4d9333b15c335ee7d1b65
Merge: 3467e765a592 5ca918e5e3f9 e16343c47e42

Merge branches 'fiq' (early part), 'fixes' and 'misc' into for-next

So, although "fiq" was the same, "fixes" had additional commits added,
an additional "l2c" branch was added, and two additional commits in "misc".

The reason why I publish a "for-next" branch is exactly so I don't have
to push out lots of individual branches, and then have to tell SFR which
branches he needs to pull on a regular basis. "for-next" is an aggregate
unstable branch solely intended to be pulled into linux-next (and thus
inspected by others.)
