Ah, right.  You did get copied on the whole series.  So the whole point
of patch "ASoC: mx27vis: retrieve gpio numbers from platform_data" is
to get rid of inclusion mach/iomux-mx27.h.  This has to be done before
we enable multi-platform support for imx, since mach/* has to be removed
completely for multi-platform build.

Ok, my bad.

The series is planned for 3.7 merge window.  Is it still possible for
you to drop the patch from your tree to ease the process?  Or I will
hold my pull-request to arm-soc until you tell me you have your tree
