Hi Peter,

Can you take just the first 4 in your tree please. I asked Anshuman to just
send those 4 but he & I seem to have miscommunicated on that.

We only depend on patch 1 in order for the powerpc parts to build, so I think
we'll just merge that into the powerpc tree and it should merge fine when it
hits next.
