Subject: Re: [PATCH 3.16 35/99] pxa168fb: Fix the function used to release
 some memory in an error handling path

Hi,

sorry for the noise, I have messed up my 
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git/ usage.
I thought I was looking at the 3.16.83 branch, but I was not.

The patch looks good to me.

CJ
