I've applied them to tip/x86/iommu:

52fceb1: x86: gart alloc_coherent doesn't need to check NULL device argument
150ba17: x86: use __GFP_NORETRY in the case of GFP_DMA with pci-nommu
3b3d509: x86: fix nommu_alloc_coherent allocation with NULL device argument

and merged them into tip/master. Thanks!

that's OK - i dont rely on the numbering when picking up patches and
they get discarded by git-am for the commit log anyway.

The only real use for numbering is when there's some really large set of
patches (dozens of them) where i'd like to make sure no mail got dropped
or reordered before i do some more difficult merge or conflict
resolution run.
