Thanks for picking up the patches from Kumar and myself and fitting
them into your series - this is much appreciated. FYI, I applied the
entire patch series to my local tree and test-booted both mpc8641 and
mpc8568mds and both build and boot cleanly. I also built pasemi and
ebony, those build cleanly as well.

Cheers,
Becky
