Is it possible to add other EC related patches recently merged in the
mainline tree. These are the following:
ACPI: EC: revert msleep patch
ACPI: EC: wait for last write gpe
ACPI: EC: restart failed command
ACPI: EC: lower interrupt storm treshold
ACPI: EC: Don't do transaction from GPE handler in poll mode.

All these patches apply without any problem on the 2.7.26 kernel. Theses
patches solves bugs #12004, #11841 and #11994. In particular, the first
one allows my computer to power down, which was not possible when the
following commit was merged in the 2.6.27.5 kernel:

ACPI: EC: do transaction from interrupt context

commit 7c6db4e050601f359081fde418ca6dc4fc2d0011 upstream.

It is easier and faster to do transaction directly from interrupt
context rather than waking control thread.:


Thanks.
