You could cherry-pick Dick's commit into your tree (and remove your
conflicting commits by rebasing). Or you could rebase your work on top of
Sam's kbuild tree (or merge Sam's tree) (but that would require Sam to
guarantee that his tree won't be rebased). Or you could do the rebase and
then just submit your tree to Sam for inclusion (instead of, or as well
as, it being included in linux-next directly). Or you could keep going
the way you are and resolve the conflict once one of the trees has been
merged into Linus' tree.

For the moment, I can keep resolving the conflict.
