Hello,

This patch is a small set of fixes from the openrisc backlog. These
changes fix several issues with the openrisc build on modern tool chains
and address other issues which have cropped up as the kernel as it is
being used on newer hardware.

Please consider for merge.

On-the-other-hand

The openrisc project has been missing a kernel maintainer
for some time now. Currently listed in MAINTAINERS is Jonas
and a website that no longer exists.


Some mail threads from Jonas
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/5/13/469 - mail from Jonas mentioning 
                                      he is no longer able to maintain 
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/6/11/426 - mail from Jonas mentioning stefan 
                                      is to be the new maintainer

Ideally stefan kristiansson would become the maintainer but he 
does not have a PGP key signed by kernel maintainers.  Also, he
does not seem to have much time recently.

We would like some help on how to proceed, options:
 - Someone take these patches into a branch that will be pulled
   by linus? I can work to maintain the patch queue for openrisc.
 - I can work to get a my PGP key signed and send git pull requests
   to linus?

Regards,
  Stafford
