I would be interested to hear what Darren and Andy's preference would be,
and have no issue with following that. My personal thought is that it's
best to have a patch series v2 submitted with the keymap fix since I think
that reduces the potential confusion now and in the future. It makes it
clear what exactly is being signed off on in any Reviewed-By tags. This
approach also removes the need for Darren or Andy to special case the
eventual merge of the series (having to remember to do the replacement),
which in turn reduces the chances of little errors creeping in. However, if
Darren and Andy are happy with an alternative then we can go with that.

As to whether v2 is held until Darren or Andy do their own review, I guess
it makes sense in case they have other suggestions which are similarly
trivial to implement.
