I've done a new branch 'for-next' now to replace the 'master' branch, and
it does not contain the broken merge any more. Please change your list
of branches accordingly.

There are three other conflicts that I found when test-merging the arm-soc
tree with the current linux-next tree. I've already written about the
omap_dss2 mismerge, which is a huge mess and I've resolved that conflict
on my end for now. There is a simpler conflict with the gpio tree, which
I've also resolved in a similar way by adding a dependency here.

The third conflict in arch/arm/mach-imx/mach-mx27_3ds.c is much simpler, so
I assume you will do the obvious hand-merge.
