Everything was good.

There's another autofs patch in Al's for-linus tree now and I don't know when it
will go to Linus.

That one will definitely cause merge conflicts.

After thinking about it, it's probably best to defer the module rename series
until after the next merge window, after all it's not urgent (apart from being
needed for so long).

I'll send over Andrei's patch alone soonish.

Thanks all for your patience,
Ian
