In general it looks pretty nice and smaller than I would have guessed. I'd
like to see each change have a nicer changelog though, explaining things more
than the one line patch summary (why, how, etc.). And like Yinghai mentioned
there may be other changes in the x86 tree that you have to deal with in
order to merge this; I can pull those into my PCI linux-next tree though to
make things easier.
