Thanks a lot, these all look really useful. My normal way of dealing
with asm-generic patches is to have changes go through the tree of
whichever maintainer needs the changes for their own work with my
Ack, but I guess in this case you don't actually have other patches
depending on them, right?

If driver maintainers want to pick individual patches from this series,
please add my

Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

otherwise let me know if I should put them into my asm-generic git
tree (which is currently empty, but part of linux-next).
