Hi Dmitry,

I obviously think this patchset is a step in the right direction (I've
ACK'd it previously), and I have no problem merging this via the audit
tree, but I'm far from an expert on all the various arches listed, so
having the associated arch maintainer ACKs is important. Based on the
mail I've seen, here is the current status of the maintainer ACKs:

* arc: good (vgupta@synopsys.com)
* c6x: good (msalter@redhat.com)
* h8300: missing
* hexagon: missing
* m68k: good (geert@linux-m68k.org)
* nds32: missing
* nios2: missing
* riscv: no longer needed
* unicore32: missing

... as you can see, we are missing a number of ACKs/reviews from some
of the smaller arches. Granted, it has been over a month, and these
patches are relatively trivial, but if you could try one more time to
get the missing ACKs I would appreciate it.

If you still can't get a response from the various maintainers by the
time the upcoming merge window closes and -next opens for business,
I'll go ahead and merge the pile into audit/next and we'll cross our
fingers that nothing explodes.

It shouldn't.

I think :)
