Right, your version looks better in both cases.

I've done this merge a few times. I think at one point I got it right,
but the version I had in my combined branch used an earlier merge
that got back through rerere. I'll try to watch out for these in the

This one was intentional, but it's not very important either. The
conflict was between 5e52b435b "ARM: mach-omap2: convert boot_params
to atag_offset" and 8d61649 "ARM: OMAP2+: board-generic: Add DT support
to generic board" and . The first one changed the method how to
find the traditional "atag" data structure, the second patch moved
the file over from having one atag (and board number) based entry
to having three distinct device tree based machine descriptions, which
obsoletes the atag_offset/boot_params.

I had originally merged them incorrectly and it seems that this mismerge
ended up in your tree now. It's harmless because the atag_offset is
ignored here, but I'll send a cleanup after checking all other files
that may have the same problem.
