    We've still got tip/tracing/immediates, with these commits from you:

    $ git-log-line linus.. arch/x86/kernel/immediate.c
    ee563d6: immediate values: jump liveliness
    e26875a: Immediate Values - Jump
    3fc8d03: Immediate Values - x86 Optimization NMI and MCE support

    ... but the topic is stalled right now, due to hpa having had
    objections. Have those concerns been resolved? (Peter Cc:-ed)

    i'd have applied this fix, but it does not apply. The first chunk seems
    already be present (in a different form), the second chunk looks much
    different.

    Ingo
