Aside from the missing Ack on the sparc patch, everything looks good to get merged from my side this time. I would suggest as next steps: - ask Daniel to include the clocksource driver patches in his tree - Provide a git tree with all the patches you plan to send for inclusion, based on v4.16-rc1. - Add any further changes on top of that branch, without rebasing any further. - give Stephen the git URL for inclusion in linux-next Arnd
