It looks like it would apply to 2.6.38 and 39 as well. I'm not sure
it qualifies under the "It must fix a real bug that bothers people".
It would only apply if someone had set NR_CPUS to more than 2.

It's not serious, so 3.1 is fine.

I had sent a pull request for msm-move-gpio to Grant, but apparently
that didn't happen. If more appropriate, I can send one to you for
it, or resend to Grant.

The msm-core stuff happened before the snafu about ARM, and I was
holding off on these things. The authors of these patches say they
are working on cleaned up versions.

I'm not sure we want the dummy clocks code in the kernel. It's
intended as a placeholder. Stephen Boyd has a 26-series patch that
adds better clock support. Given the size (13047 insertions), this
may need some cleanup or even device-tree work to include.

Unfortunately, a lot of the Qualcomm development seems to have moved
back to private trees.

BTW, I am planning on being at the Linaro Connect in August.
