Gentle ping.
Any comments on the following patches:

  genirq: Provide new interfaces for affinity hints
  scsi: megaraid_sas: Use irq_set_affinity_and_hint
  scsi: mpt3sas: Use irq_set_affinity_and_hint
  enic: Use irq_update_affinity_hint
  be2net: Use irq_update_affinity_hint
  mailbox: Use irq_update_affinity_hint
