Bruce Ashfield - July 20, 2012, 3:19 p.m.
Richard/Saul,

I've got some -stable updates, -rt updates and other changes
that are almost done, but I wanted to get these smaller patches
out of my queue first.

We have some cleanup patches from Robert P. J. Day and a meta
branch update for EMGD, CONFIG_MTD_NAND_VERIFY_WRITE and kmemcheck.

I've gone ahead and pushed the emgd update from Nitin, if it requires
re-work, we'll just add more commits to the branch. 

Tom/Nitin: speak up if there's a problem with this!

Cheers,

Bruce

Bruce,
   I notice that in the meta branch you also created patches for commits from the emgd-1.14 branch such as meta/cfg/kernel-cache/features/emgd/yocto-emgd-emgd-1.14-driver.patch. So emgd-1.14 support is available by 2 ways now. 1: By enabling these patches & 2: by merging the emgd-1.14 branch. For crownbay it is merging the emgd-1.14 branch, so these patches from meta directory can not be used. 
  I don't see any functional issue with this layout, but I am curious why these patches in meta branch when emgd-1.14 branch can be merged to get the same effect.

Thanks,
Nitin

.. and they aren't supposed to be used, are there any BSPs actively
including the emgd-1.14 feature ? I didn't see any, so I left the
patches in the feature description. If a BSP does a git merge of the
branch, it shouldn't include the feature, since as you mention, that
would push the patches again.

It's just providing options, since merging branches isn't always
possible.

The kernel-cache should always have the raw patches that you find
on the branches. Some prefer the patches (and don't want to dump the
from the branches) and they document the commits on the branches.

I for one always use the merge, and prefer the branch only commits, but
my inbox is full from people requesting the raw patches over the years :)

Cheers,

Bruce
