That was not clear to me.

Yes it does. That conflict is with v5.7-rc2, which exists because your
tree is based on v5.7-rc1, and so a fix that arrived in the mean time
is touching some of the lines that are being removed in v5.8.

That is why I mentioned that you could preempt this by merging
v5.7-rc2 into your tree as well.

The other conflict is with the EFI changes queued up for v5.8 in the
-tip tree. The pr_efi_err() function was renamed to efi_err(), which
was used in a lot of places. This is slightly annoying, but rather
straightforward to resolve.

In any case, I am happy to go along with whatever you feel is best.
