These are all powerpc specific patches that have been cooking in Alex
tree for a while and elsewhere before that. They almost only affect
arch/powerpc/kvm, and as such don't really need a lot of integration
testing in -next. A bit for sure but not necessarily monthes.

The current process is such that it takes absolutely forever for our
patches to get in, which is a major PITA for something in such state of
active development.

Why don't we have Alex tree go straight to -next like I do with Kumar
for example ? That way I don't need to have his branch sit in my tree
for weeks before I push it out to Linus.

Cheers,
Ben.
