Please do say when you're submitting if this is you're intention - if  
you just send me patches without any other comment I'll tend to assume  
that your intention is that I should apply them and go ahead and do so  
if they review OK. Merging via ARM is OK providing the build doesn't  
get broken. If that happens we can do the same thing as has been done  
with TWL4030 and merge a branch into both trees.
