Hmm. Pulling it in gives me a few new build errors, in particular on
the configs that Russell use to build test omap3, as well as one of
his vexpress configs. So I dropped it again for now.

Let's have the current contents sit in linux-next for at least one
release before we bring in anything more, especially since it brings
in dependencies on external trees, and it also has a handful of new
merge conflicts. We're already exposing Stephen Rothwell to more merge
conflicts than I'm entirely comfortable with.
