Hello Russell, hello Greg,

OK, the current state is that Russell applied the patch fixing
drivers/mailbox/arm_mhuv2.c on top of merging my first tag.

So the way forward now is that Greg pulls

git://git.armlinux.org.uk/~rmk/linux-arm.git devel-stable

which currently points to

860660fd829e ("ARM: 9055/1: mailbox: arm_mhuv2: make remove callback return void")

, into his tree that contains the hwtracing changes that conflict with my
changes. @Greg: Is this good enough, or do you require a dedicated tag
to pull that?

I think these conflicting hwtracing changes are not yet in any of Greg's
trees (at least they are not in next).

When I pull

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/coresight/linux.git next

(currently pointing to 4e73ff249184 ("coresight: etm4x: Handle accesses
to TRCSTALLCTLR")) into 860660fd829e, I get a conflict in
drivers/hwtracing/coresight/coresight-etm4x-core.c as expected. My
resolution looks as follows:

diff --cc drivers/hwtracing/coresight/coresight-etm4x-core.c
index 82787cba537d,5017d33ba4f5..000000000000

}

static const struct amba_id etm4_ids[] = {
