Cool (just checking).

We should probably decide on a Proper Way(TM) to do this.

I'm thinking that perhaps the protocol should be:
1) send skiboot patches to skiboot@
2) send linux patches (labelled RFC) to skiboot@ and linuxppc-dev@

This probably lets us clearly *not* have linux patches merged until
firmware code is (as if we change the firmware interface during review
this is going to lead to crying rather than success if linux has
incorrect code).
