Thanks for your patience and persistence on this series, and thanks for
working closely with the input folks to get the issues worked through.

This series looks good to me, so I'll be queuing it in davinci-next for
2.6.38. It should show up in davinci git shortly. Please validate
things are working as expected there. Were there any changes needed to
the defaults in da8xx_omapl_defconfig to enable these features by
default? or does the Kconfig change in PATCH 5/5 cover it?

Also, I really appreciate the thorough patch descriptions and history
information. This greatly eases the work of maintainers. Thanks!

One minor question: the series has a couple of Signed-off-by tags from
Sekhar Nori. The s-o-b tag is for folks on the delivery path, and based
on what I saw, these should probably be Acked-by tags from Sekhar, since
he certainly helped on the review/test/validate side, but AFAICT, was
not an author or on the delivery path. If I'm wrong on this (e.g., if
Sekhar actually did author some of those patches) let me know, otherwise
I'll change the s-o-b to Acked-by for Sekhar.

Thanks,

Kevin
