humm, there are two patchkits, this one with two patches, the other with
3, this one for the kernel, the other one for tools/, but for the tools/
part to work, does this one needs to be applied first?
Should I try to process the 5 together, applying thest two first?
I see there are no acks from powerpc arch maintainers, how should we
proceed here? If there are no problems with the arch bits, and if it is
just to enable the tooling part, again, should I process the 5 as just
