do you have a delta patch against tip/x86/audit-speedup by any chance?
That is a topic branch of your previous drop, which got tested as well
to a certain degree. Would make it easier to see what changed, would
make the merge have a more nuanced history, etc.

or, alternatively, if you have a -git based branch that i could pull,
that would be nice as well. (i can compare old-x86/audit-speedup to
new-x86/audit-speedup.)
