The only patch that needs to go into 2.6.27 is the one titled "alsa: make the
CS4270 driver a new-style I2C driver" from me.  This one is missing from Linus'

I notice that "ALSA: ASoC: Fix another cs4270 error path" is in Linus' tree, but
nothing else is.

I can do that, but I'm not sure how I can be any clearer.  "This is for 2.6.x",
to me at least, means exactly that - that this patch should be applied to the
branch for 2.6.27, which is either a release candidate (i.e. 2.6.27-rcX) or a
bug fix (i.e. 2.6.27.x), depending on what's next.

If you want me to use different wording, just tell me what I should say.
