Wow, wait a second. I'm just catching up on this thread.

Lukas didn't committed the patch to drm-misc without a review, didn't you?

I was intentionally holding back a rb because that isn't my field of 
expertise and I was only briefly involved in the original patch. Alex 
should be back by the end of the week, so no need for a rush like that.

Daniels patch was a global cleanup of include path done by search and 
replace a complete different story.
