Yes it's unfortunate it's broken. But frankly I'm pretty tired of this
constant fixing up of basic things for omaps after every merge window.

If some patches are not tested properly, then everybody,
_do_not_try_to_merge_broken_patches_upstream_. Let them float on the
mailing lists until they get fixed or forgotten. Simple as that.

If we want to fix something this late in the merge window, the patches
must have a clear description what caused the regression and what happens
without the patches. These patches don't have that. And they are marked
RFC also. So actually I'm not applying any of them before the regression
descriptions are there and the patches have been reposted without RFC
and have sufficient acks from people.
