The question is - what do we do? As far as I understand the intent was
to push this through Greg's char-misc tree. If I rebase it to Bjorn's
pci tree patches won't apply to char-misc and Greg won't take them. I
see three possible ways to go:
1) Take them into char-misc and resolve the conflict in merge window
(Linus will hate us all :-( )
2) Ask Greg to merge with Bjorn _now_ so we can send the rebased
3) Postpone these patches to the next kernel release. No guarantee we
won't clash with something else :-(

So I'm a bit lost. With Hyper-V drivers scattered across multiple trees
we're doomed to have such issues with every relatively big series.
