No, you can't.

This series depends on my Kconfig work.

You queued it up on v4.17-rc3,
but necessary patches are not there.

You will get build errors.

> I'll plan to merge the first three into the powerpc tree.

Please do not do this.

You can issue Acked-by instead.

I need all the 4 patches to my tree.
Otherwise, the git-bisect'ability breaks for PowerPC.

See, the PPC breakage report from Stephen Rothwell

I already queued my and Nicholas' patches.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/masahiroy/linux-kbuild kconfig


Please check if the patch order is correct.

I need to insert 'powerpc/kbuild' patches between.
