SubjectRe: [PATCH 6/6] MIPS: CPS: drop .set mips64r2 directives
Thanks John,

That's fine & understood, it's the month before that when these sat
quietly - through the release of a kernel which they fix a regression in
no less, and despite my having asked Ralf on IRC about them a couple of
weeks before v4.2 was released.

If they just fell off the radar or through the cracks, fine, it happens.
I just want to be sure that regression gets fixed as soon as possible.

Thanks,
Paul
