SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/37] OF: move device node pointer into struct device.
From: Grant Likely <>

Three or four of the patches don't apply because only your tree
has those "/* temporary */" comments, f.e. in arch/sparc/kernel/pci.c

I took care of this when applying to my tree.

I'd rather you just apply the sparc one immediately in 2.6.35 and
not wait at all.
