Don't start a fight over my head without me. :)

Daniel, thanks for the patches for bringing sunxi up to 3.19. I already 
had done some work, but this patchset helps, so I'll work it in and add 
you as SoB when committing.

One small note, it might be worth to send "generic" and 
"target_foo-related" in separate series to the list, so they could be 
picked up and committed separately, avoiding unnecessary confusion. 
(That's just my $.02 though.)
