I always rebase my pull requests against Dave's drm-fixes tree before
I send a pull request.  Since he's out of town I rebased against your
tree.  I didn't realize that was not the preferred model.  I thought
it was preferred to fix up any possible conflicts that may arise from
other changes in the subsystem tree (although are pretty unlikely).
