Option 1 seems like the lowest overhead, as that way we don't need to sequence
the patches between multiple trees. If all the other arch maintianers are OK
with it then that works for me. The 0-day robot found a new build warning on
openrisc. I was plannning on submitting a v4 with this fix in it

diff --git a/arch/openrisc/include/asm/irq.h b/arch/openrisc/include/asm/irq.h
index d9eee0a2b7b4..eb612b1865d2 100644
--- a/arch/openrisc/include/asm/irq.h
+++ b/arch/openrisc/include/asm/irq.h
@@ -24,6 +24,4 @@

#define NO_IRQ (-1)

-extern void set_handle_irq(void (*handle_irq)(struct pt_regs *));
#endif /* __ASM_OPENRISC_IRQ_H__ */

I can submit a v4, or you can just grab it from
