Please consider merging also Thomas White's gdrm-2.6.32 branch
It's used in SHR kernels and after WSOD fix is KMS driver at least as good as
old fb driver was.
defconfig and all patches used in SHR are available
(gdrm-2.6.32 branch, stable patch 126.96.36.199, work-around for wm8753
build with gcc-4.4)
