And it actually would be better if you replaced the patches that had introduced
the build problems with new fixed ones, because otherwise your whole series
has bisection issues potentially.

And since the Greg's patch queue is quilt-based, for what I can tell, that's
entirely doable.

So the fact that your patches in this series fix build issues in -next
introduced by your previous patches isn't any excuse at all. There still is
a plenty of time before the v3.7 merge window to fix things properly.

Thanks,
Rafael
