I interpreted your "So much for the linux-next tree" as saying "well,
that has been no help". I am sorry if I got that wrong.

But my point above is that you had a fix for the current breakage in
Linus' tree a couple of weeks before you sent the patches to Linus that
broke the powerpc build (i.e. linux-next did its job) and yet you didn't
combine the fix with the original patch or send the fix with the original
patch. So we end up with a powerpc tree that won't build in the middle
of the merge window while more powerpc patches are trying to be
tested ... I understand that this could easily happen because of
forgetfulness, tiredness or accident.

More care was needed.
