I only see one detail worth mentioning on reading the resulting merge
in ingo.tip.

Shouldn't the static array declarations in arch/x86/kernel/e820.c
be indented? It looks like the -file- static declarations
from arch/x86/kernel/e820_32.c (which were not indented) took
precedence in the merge over the -function- static declarations
from arch/x86/kernel/e820_64.c. The code, from the perspective
of what ends up in the compiled kernel, seems fine -- just the
indentation off.

int __init sanitize_e820_map(struct e820entry *biosmap, int max_nr_map,
int *pnr_map)
struct change_member {
struct e820entry *pbios; /* pointer to original bios entry */
unsigned long long addr; /* address for this change point */
static struct change_member change_point_list[2*E820_X_MAX] __initdata;
static struct change_member *change_point[2*E820_X_MAX] __initdata;
static struct e820entry *overlap_list[E820_X_MAX] __initdata;
static struct e820entry new_bios[E820_X_MAX] __initdata;
struct change_member *change_tmp;
unsigned long current_type, last_type;
unsigned long long last_addr;

I won't rest till it's the best ...
