Subject: linux-next: manual merge of the ipmi tree with the modules tree

Hi Corey,

Today's linux-next merge of the ipmi tree got a conflict in:


between commit:

  e4dca7b7aa08 ("treewide: Fix function prototypes for module_param_call()")

from the modules tree and commit:

  44814ec982d2 ("ipmi_si: Move the hotmod handling to another file.")

from the ipmi tree.

I fixed it up (I used the ipmi tree version of the file and added the
following merge fix patch) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.
