^ we're too late then. ;-)
Patches already began to fuzz at the fsl_soc.c, yet more time and
they'll reject to apply. So.. Paul, Kumar can we get this in for
I believe afterward this one will need some attention too:
Thanks in advance,
p.s. I just noticed that "fsl_soc: add support for gianfar for
fixed-link .." patch could be cosmetically improved (removing
casts, adding checks for size after the of_get_property), but I
hope we can do this on top of already applied patches.
