I took the time to fix the patch for the GCC 4.6 build issue. Instead
of just fixing the issue on my own, I looked at how it was done in the
mainline kernel and backported the fixes through a new patch named
fix-gcc-4.6.0-build-errors.patch; this approach seems more logical to
While I was at it, also removed "[PATCH 2/2] ben-nanonote: add
DEFAULTTUNE to machine configuration" from the patchset, following
Paul's advice.

Tested by building linux-jlime-ben-nanonote from scratch on top of
master branch.
Please pull into meta-handheld.
