Do we need a policy on whether or not to use Bcc here?
One argument for using Bcc is that it avoids replies from subscribers
to the destination mailing lists from also being CC'd to
patches(a)linaro.org. Can your analysis cope with patches(a)linaro.org
receiving a whole thread, or do we need to be careful about this?
Here's the branch implementing basic device tree support based on the
linaro-2.6.38 tree. Should be good to go.

I've been trying to boot Linaro on Panda board following the
instructions given in https://wiki.linaro.org/Boards/Panda. I've used
hwpack_linaro-panda_20110217-0_armel_supported.tar.gz. After writing the
image successfully on an SD card I tried booting the board from it and
got a kernel panic: http://paste.ubuntu.com/569954
Please let me know how to get out of this problem.
As the next Linaro release (11.05) will include the 2.6.38 kernel, it
was decided that the linaro-2.6.38 branch would open early i.e. before
the final 2.6.38 kernel is released. So there it is.
All the extra patches that were available in linaro-2.6.37 should be
included in linaro-2.6.38 at this point. Some notable exceptions at the
moment are some Thumb2 support patches, and some ARMv6k compatibility
patches. I expect to get a fresh set from Dave Martin soon for the
former, and I'll eventually merge RMK's devel branch which would bring
in the later.
But as you should know already, the feature freeze is due this Thursday
February 24th. So now is the time to consider the linaro-2.6.38 tree,
put on top all the patches you want to see in the upcoming Linaro
release, and ask me to merge them in. If you need some subsystem tree
such as MMC to be included as well then now is the time to say so as
