No I can't do that, it's almost entirely Takashi's tree and in any case
I doubt that this would actually help with the problems you are seeing.

Looking at what you're getting below I suspect you've got something that
looks like the ASoC branch in there but for some reason git isn't
figuring out the merge automatically.  In my experience this is normally
a result of either cherry picking patches over or having had one of your
patches merged (which has the same effect).

I suspect this is a pull or something, rather than a merge?

There's no diff between my tree and Linus' tree here any more.

This file isn't present in Linus' tree.

I would expect that the easiest thing to do here is for you to just
accept all the for-2.6.30 versions of things.
