Sorry to have cause this confusion. After I saw that my initial tag
missed to adapt a driver I wanted to make it easy for you to fix the
So I created a patch to fix it and created a second tag with the patch
squashed in. Obviously only one of them have to be picked and I hoped
you (= Russell + Greg) would agree which option to pick.

My preference would be if you both pick up v2 of the tag to yield a
history that is bisectable without build problems, but if Russell (who
already picked up the broken tag) considers his tree immutable and so
isn't willing to rebase, then picking up the patch is the way to go.

I suggest that Russell descides which option he wants to pick and tells
Greg to do the same!?

Best regards
