Update on linaro-tracking-androidization for 3.2

Linus released 3.1 a couple of days ago, I have archived the tracking
androidization patchset with a pure vanilla 3.1 release basis here
The tracking androidization tree has already moved on into Linus' new
pre-3.2 basis territory
There were big file layout refactors in the mainline networking stack that
caused a lot of impact network / wireless related patches, some smaller
adaptations needed in gadget related patches and a little bluetooth dust.
Interestingly during the uplevel I noticed three patches (of ~470) had
evidently managed to get upstream so far for 3.2
I am updating the affected patches in linaro-androidization-tracking
directly. I have already been automatically tagging each push, with, eg,
"linaro-androidization-tracking-2011-10-25-18-24-CST", so there is a history
of these rebase trees being kept.
My plan after this is to perform a more aggressive squash on the refactored
patchset (I would like to considerably reduce the number of "internal
history" type patches, keeping the contributor patch logs in the squash
patch's log) and moving to using just that, instead of continuing to run the
patchset we started with and the refactored one simultaneously.
I am testing this against OMAP4 Panda board, soon there will be more test
coverage coming for the other LEBs supported by Linaro. We know already
that some of the non-core Androidization features were broken in common-3.0
and remained broken in the starting point for this tree. Any patches to fix
things like Broadcomm WLAN or whatever that we don't use at Linaro will be
very welcome. However, we believe the all core Android features are working
fine on this tree, since they result in a working Linaro Android rootfs for
Panda (complete with PVR accelerated video).
PS If anyone interested in this stuff is at Linaro Connect, feel free to
ping me for a chat / beer
