    But the patches that add hardpps and parport client+generator depend on
    the previous ones because the latter change lots of things in PPS
    subsystem. I don't want to maintain them separately because we use all
    of them in the production.

    However I can tell here that it'll be ok for me if not all the patches
    enter mainline at the same time. For example, patches 1-3 are already
    ACKed and are actually bugfixes (patch 2 is trivial and patch 3 depends
    on it) so I think they could be merged in the next rc. I placed them
    in the beginning exactly for this reason. Whom should I mail them?

    Same thing with other patches. Smaller patchset -> me (and probably
    users) more happy. :)
