I merely expect people not to push known broken code into linux-next.
linux-next breaks on all sorts of architectures all the time (check
http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/branch/9/). One of the reasons
linux-next exists is so that all kernel developers don't have to build
test on all architectures all the time. (And, yes, I know that linux-next
doesn't build all architectures or all configs.)

That being said, I will complain about breakages on some architectures
more than others since they are in my personal builds (as opposed to the
over night builds).

That being said (:-)), I am sure that the PARISC guys would appreciate
the original problem being fixed.
