... but that will have the side effect of making it non-bisectable will
it not? If we change the interface of AB8500 to abx500.h in one
patch that breaks the users and the order is not restored until all
patches are applied.

Isn't it better to just resend the same patch and Cc: the relevant
subsystem maintainers on it?

I'll sign it off and do this, I should've been in the submit path
anyway.

If you prefer to have it non-bisectable I'll post yet another version
for that.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
