Hi Nicolas,

I cannot merge this into the next/cleanup branch because you have based it
on top of a non-cleanup branch. There are three ways out of this:

1. rebase the entire branch on a changeset that only contains upstream and
cleanup branches, and let me deal with merge conflicts against the at91/9x5
branch.

2. Split this series into two parts, with the simple cleanups going directly
in as in 1, but cleanups on top of the at91/9x5 branch get applied to that
branch only.

3. Create a new next/cleanup2 branch with this pull request that I submit
to Linus separately from the other cleanups.

Which one should it be?

I'm also still not entirely happy with the contents because the newly
introduced macros all still use __raw_readl() instead of readl_relaxed(),
and because the rtt setup appears unnecessarily complex while at the same
time still not sufficient for a combined at91 kernel. It would be nice
if those could be fixed, but I would still take the series without changing
the rtt code because we have not really come to a conclusion otherwise
and the series generally moves things into the right direction.

I've applied your series to the staging/cleanup branch for now, which
means it gets into linux-next but I won't send to Linus unless I get
an update.

Arnd
