The PL330 merge didn't happen in the 3.3 merge window and I can't see it
in linux-next, so linux 3.3 will ship with the driver still split in
arch/arm/common/pl330.c and drivers/dma/pl330.c . I think this patch
should be part of linux 3.3 (and you should add "Cc: stable at kernel.org"
so that it's included in the next 3.2 stable release).
Unless somebody thinks otherwise, Mans, can you please submit it to
rmk's patch tracking system?
