No problem.

Yes, it were applied already.

What you call trunk, it not, really a trunk, but a tree where all patches
got merged. I've been pointing it several times, but people doesn't seem
to listen: that tree is were we'll expect problems to happen, since it is
just an alpha staging before submitting things to linux-next, where all
patches got merged.

The bad thing is that people use it as if they were stable, when it weren't
meant to be stable at all.

That's why I decided to deprecate it.

On the next few days, I intend to stop adding patches at -hg tree, passing its
maintainance to another person. Douglas already offered to do it for us.

The idea is that I'll apply patches directly into my git trees. And then, the
hg maintainer will backport the patches into -hg.

This also means that patch backports will need to be sent in separate, as those
patches won't fit into -git.

I'm finishing the details and I'll post an official announce about that soon.
