That's hardly urgent; as far as I'm concerned, ksignal conversion is for
3.10-rc1. OTOH, these helpers are for 3.9-rc1, so any architecture that
cares to switch is welcome to it; less work for me that way. Hell, as
far as I'm concerned, any maintainer of an in-tree architecture who's happy
with arch-$ARCHITECTURE is welcome to say so and pull it into their tree
right now. That'll bring the stem of signal.git in, complete with ksignal
helpers to play with. That part is in no-rebase mode. The same goes for
arc and metag, except that you'd need to pull the branchpoint of arch-*
(signal.git#Base) instead...
