| Well, I have a running android freerunner too with this patchset. So I

| I have done some fixes for the freerunner too, and my suspend/resume

If I understood it Sean's just saying they should be in
staging/drivers/misc, and that they patchset meddles in printk.c.

We're not driving upstream for this patchset Google is AFAIK, we just
have to try to absorb what's being changed.  At the moment there is a
staging/drivers/android in our tree so it's OK if we put it there today.
~ But next rebase we may have to move it again, I guess it's not a huge
problem then.

printk.c stuff is a bit messy for us to carry alone but it's OK.

So I took the patches -- thanks for your work on it -- but we will need
another round of moving / cleaning up next rebase to upstream it seems.
