What happened is that you (Andrew) sent them on to me pretty much
unexamined.  I took a look at them and dropped one of them because it
created a new /proc file.  I asked Kumar to look at them and he had
issues with another three of the patches, and dropping those meant
that all the following ones (including the fix-kernel-doc one)
wouldn't apply, so I dropped them too.  I applied the rest and sent
them to Linus.

Yeah.  I nearly dropped that one too.  I probably should have. :)

Please don't.  At this stage I think the best thing is for Kumar to
talk to Zhang Wei (they both work for Freescale, so that should be
possible in theory :) and get him to rework the remaining patches as
required for inclusion in 2.6.27.
