looks good, but could you please switch over the changes to be based on
the "upstream" topic branch of your patches, i.e. to tip/x86/prototypes?

You can do it the following way:

git checkout master
git merge tip/master # get latest
git checkout -b x86/prototypes-for-tip # new pull branch
git rebase --onto tip/x86/prototypes tip/master # switch

In theory this should run just fine without any conflicts or manual
intervention needed.

If that rebase command ran fine, double-check the end result by looking
at the output of:

git log tip/x86/prototypes..x86/prototypes-for-tip

... then resend the pull request for the x86/prototypes branch you have,
by doing something like:

git-request-pull tip/x86/prototypes git:// x86/prototypes-for-tip

The reason for not basing your branch on tip/master is that we want to
keep x86/protypes topic a "pure" topic that is mergable without waiting
for other topics - without mixing it with all other topics that are
integrated into tip/master.

And note that x86/prototypes-for-tip is a by-line branch that you should
not touch after sending the pull request (so that what i pull matches up
to the summary in the email you send) - you can still evolve your master
branch with other work, create other branches, etc.

Let me know if there's any Git hickup.
