I should have posted this sooner...

I have no objection to merging OLPC patches, but they should build
without errors.

>From linux-next 20110722:

arch/x86/built-in.o: In function `battery_status_changed':
olpc-xo15-sci.c:(.text+0x3acdd): undefined reference to `power_supply_get_by_name'
olpc-xo15-sci.c:(.text+0x3ad04): undefined reference to `power_supply_changed'
arch/x86/built-in.o: In function `ac_status_changed':
olpc-xo15-sci.c:(.text+0x3ad4d): undefined reference to `power_supply_get_by_name'
olpc-xo15-sci.c:(.text+0x3ad74): undefined reference to `power_supply_changed'

Looks like this problem is caused by:

config OLPC_XO1_SCI
bool "OLPC XO-1 SCI extras"
depends on OLPC && OLPC_XO1_PM && POWER_SUPPLY

config OLPC_XO15_SCI
bool "OLPC XO-1.5 SCI extras"
depends on OLPC && ACPI && POWER_SUPPLY

In both cases, the 'bool' depends on one or more tristate symbols, so
the tristates are satisfied if they are =m or =y. This should work fine
if these kconfig symbols (listed above) were tristate instead of bool.
