Hi Jason,

I'm currently cleaning up my patch series for ftrace syscalls on PowerPC
and want to release it soon.

It's probably easiest for me if I release your compat syscall support v3
patches as part of the series. You'd still be marked as the author of
those commits - the only changes I have made to them was rebasing them
against the current tip tree and resolving the conflicts that I came

Is that OK with you? Otherwise I can wait until you put out the v4
patches then rebase mine on top of those.
