Unlike for-next-acked-merged, the other branches aren't rebased and
therefore have merge conflicts with 3.3 material; that's intentional.

Not a 3.3-based one, so I recommend you to just merge Marek's branch directly.

I'll soon create a full-fledged 3.3 branch though, so you may want to
wait a bit until I get to it.

If your driver boots the remote core on its ->probe() handler, then
yes, you need to unbind and bind the device.

One way is to unload and load the driver, but you can also use the
bind/unbind sysfs files of your driver (echo -n device-name >
/sys/..../{un}bind).

Ohad.
