    looks good, but could you please do this like you did the previous one:
    i.e. against your previous tree which was against Linus's tree?

    The tree you did above includes a ton of other in-work trees that are in
    -tip, which orders your fixes to after those trees - i.e. to somewhere in
    the late 2.6.30 merge cycle.

    So it's better to keep these separate. You can do this by basing your tree
    on tip:core/header-fixes:

    git checkout -b my-new-tree tip/core/header-fixes

    That will give you a base of your previous tree (in a Git friendly way),
    plus Sam's fix.

    Then you can git-cherry-pick all your new commits into that new tree, and
    send a pull request if you are happy with it. Likewise, you can probably
    achieve the same (with a lot less work) by doing this in your master
    branch above:

    git rebase --onto tip/core/header-fixes tip/master

    (this assumes you have -tip set up as a remote repository.)
