    I have skimmed the patches - they all looked good to me.
    Everyting that cleans up arch/um/Makefile is good!

    I you respin them you can add my:

    Acked-by: Sam Ravnborg <>

    The asm-offsets.h that um picks us is the one generated by um.
    So we still need to add a dummy file in arch/um/include/asm that

    #include <generated/asm-offsets.h>

    I will do so in my patch-set.
