Some have been sent upstream but not all of those have appeared in
Linus' tree yet since Linus is away at the moment.  Also I started
travelling about the same time that you went on vacation, which made
it difficult for me to process patches since I had no good way to test
patches.  Then when I came back I had a paper to write which
distracted me from kernel work.

I did want to get the notifier list for EEH isolation events in but
you still had the "only if ethernet" policy code in there.  We had a
short conversation about that, and despite what you said, I still
don't think it is right.  I think we possibly need something that
counts pending EEH errors and panics if the count exceeds a threshold

Your "PCI Config Space reads need EEH checking" depends on the
notifier list patch, so I haven't sent that upstream.

It compiles fine if you turn off hotplug PCI. :) It certainly needs to
be fixed, but I want it fixed properly.
