The part improving the kthread worker API and the intel powerclamp conversion seem to be ready for the mainline. But it is getting too late for 4.7. I am going to resend this part of the patch set separately after the 4.7 merge window finishes with the aim for 4.8. The other conversions are spread over many subsystems, so I will send them separately. Tejun, may I add your ack for some of the patches, please? Or do you want to wait for the resend? Andrew, I wonder if it could go via the -mm tree once I get the acks. Best Regards, Petr
