I think, compilation-breakage fixes should have higher priority than
further enhancements. Think about bisection. If you now first commit
several more patches, you make the interval where the tree is not
compilable longer, and thus the probabiliy that someone hits it in their
git.bisect higher. That's why I think any compilation breakage should be
fixed ASAP. And which changes do you mean specifically? This one:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-sh&m=122346619318532&w=2

Yes, indeed they conflict, but it is trivial to fix. So, I would prefer to
close the compile-breakage window ASAP, and then trivially update that one
your patch. Let's see what others say. And as for through which tree it
should go, if you insist the sh-part going through the sh-tree, then it
has to be split into two parts - video and sh. Thus extending the
breakage-window by one commit...

Thanks, but no thanks:-) I cannot add your copyright, at least not without
your explicit agreement (I think). So, I'd prefer you submit a patch for
that.

Thanks
