You picked a bad time unfortunately. Today will amost certainly be the
last linux-next tree before the merge window opens (since I will be on
vacation until kernel summit) so if it breaks the tree, it will impact on
others testing (and there won't be a followup tree to correct the problem).

Also, the commit messages are still very terse (as a few people pointed
out) and I have seen no response to Thomas' remarks either.

It really isn't trivial because we have had various problems with init
and const in the past with various toolchains (and even different
problems on different architectures with the "same" toolchain).

Linus or Andrew may still want to take these, but I don't think I can add
it to linux-next right now, sorry.
