hi Greg,
I'm assuming that you will submit you patch queue to Linus first, then I
will create a merge which fixes this issue and ask Linus to pull that - so
everything is all still bisectable without me rebasing.

If you are OK with that, please let me know when you have submitted your
queue.. I'll try to keep and eye open, but I might miss it...
