/me dons managerial hat

Yes, please. Your pull request really do not need any special handling.

Please add a unique signed tag to each pull request and stick the
description, e.g.

 " EFI fixes for v5.7-rcX:
   - fix EFI framebuffer earlycon for wide fonts
   - avoid filling screen_info with garbage...."
   
into the tag which gives us the merge commit message automagically.

Thanks

        tglx
