Sure.

For important things I think it doesn't hurt to resend even if they've
been "reviewed" beforehand. Particularly if you don't think enough
attention was paid to them.

These patches are a good example of that. By the time 2.6.29 opens
everyone will have forgotten what all this stuff does and how it
works.

We need to get alpha sorted out too. Frankly, if we can't get anyone to
review/test/ack the alpha genirq conversion then I'd say merge it
anyway. I'll make sure that it at least compiles.
