FWIW, when I've run into unexpected merge conflicts with other trees in the
past, I've found that it's usually sufficient just to include the resolution
as an inline diff in the pull request, rather than try to munge the tree
with merges or rebases. Linus is pretty good at figuring it out, and with a
resolution to compare with, the damage is limited. The downside of the merge
is that it's fiddly to extract the changes and see what's actually being
pulled.

Also, it's not like the kbuild stuff has been in -next for ages, so this
would've been a late and messy conflict regardless.
