    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.
