Sorry, this was stuck on my to-read-and-reply list.

I think merging for arch/arm is what makes sense here, even if we end
up at some point in the future moving it out. Only time will tell if
that makes sense or not, and it's not going to be a big deal to handle
at that time.

An ack from Russell would be appreciated, or we'd need to set up a
shared branch given the Tegra dependencies that would go on top.
Either is ok with me.
