This is the start of the stable review cycle for the 3.9.6 release.
There are 79 patches in this series, all will be posted as a response
to this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please
let me know.

Responses should be made by Thu Jun 13 19:50:17 UTC 2013.
Anything received after that time might be too late.

The whole patch series can be found in one patch at:
and the diffstat can be found below.

powerpc defconfig and as well as various other powerpc builds fail with:

arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/msi.c: In function 'rtas_hack_32bit_msi_gen2':
arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/msi.c:408:34: error: 'struct pci_dev' has no member named 'msi_cap'
arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/msi.c:410:35: error: 'struct pci_dev' has no member named 'msi_cap'
arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/msi.c:411:35: error: 'struct pci_dev' has no member named 'msi_cap'

Introduced by commit 7b58b0edaa2 (powerpc/pseries: Make 32-bit MSI quirk work
on systems lacking firmware support).


7b58b0edaa2 is from my git branch and won't help much.



The original patch that introduced these changes (commit f1dd153121 - powerpc/pseries: Make 32-bit MSI quirk work on systems lacking firmware support) depends on commit e375b561 (PCI: Cache MSI/MSI-X capability offsets in struct pci_dev), however, the patch I sent to the stable mailing-list were backported to be applied over 3.9.y. I have already sent an email to Greg to let him know that the original patch breaks the ppc build and the backported version should be picked up instead.
