My question was answered in another thread related to the misc subsystem.
The patch this one depends on will only be available in 3.3-rc1. It would have been
nice to let us know ahead of time, because I _did_ find out the hard way.

I would suggest to resubmit the i2c and spi patches against a working baseline
once it is available, to make sure it does not miss some new drivers.

On a side note, this patch does miss the drivers in hwmon/pmbus, but I can take care
of those myself.
