Well. It really helps if submitters tell us that a patch fixes another
pending patch, and which one that is. Usually Ihave to ask if I can't work
it out.

But if a) we weren't told that and b) I have no reason to think it's not a
mainline problem and c) the patch applies to mainline and d) the patch
affects an architecture which I'm not cross-compiling for, it's going to
sneak through.

Fortunately, a && b && c && d doesn't happen at all often.
