I was thinking that it would be useful if this core branch also included
the Gator code that is currently in the ARM LT topic.
This is code which we want in all Linaro kernels and if LTs pull in the
core branch they will automatically get the latest code without having
to pull it from elsewhere.
This way, come the monthly release, if there are problems which mean an
LT kernel can't come from the linux-linaro branch, and is instead
released from the LT's own tree, then that kernel will still contain
Gator, (assuming the LT still pull core into there release).
The Gator code itself is a separate driver, so won't cause more than
trivial merge problems for people pulling the core branch.
