I think that in doing that you might end up breaking at least powerpc
and microblaze proc and sys interfaces, but I agree with the process.

I understand that, it holds back patch 2, but it is fine since it can
get in as a fix even if it misses the merge window, as long as you
agree with the overall approach.

Thank you,
