Thanks.

I think this is fairly trivial conflict -- Kees is adding the
__randomize_layout attribute here, and I'm just adding a field to each
of these structs.

The main catch is that both of these branches have a fair number of
preparatory patches before the above changes occur, so pulling one into
the other is not trivial.

Would it be best to just send the PRs to Linus and have him fix this up
in the final merge?
