Yes, that was intentional. We had not originally decided which branch to send
first, so I asked Andreas to include the same commits in both branches.

The SMP support in arch/arm/mach-actions has a build-time dependency
on the code, so it needed to be in there, and the drivers branch simply
includes all the drivers/*/ changes.

In the past I sometimes generated the log in the pull request to match what
you are expected to see in the real merge, instead of the diff against mainline,
but now I only do that in case we have to do a backmerge for some reason
(most of the time we can avoid those, I think this time one of the pull requests
had a backmerge of 4.12-rc1..4.12-rc2).

Let me know if you would rather have us handle this differently.
