Urgent ping? It has been another week, we're coming up to soft freeze
and the PPC guys are urgently after an OpenBIOS fix.
As per the above I'd really like the branches switched around so that
both the git.qemu-project.org master and github.com master are exactly
the same HEAD although I believe it may be technically possible to do
this part separately once the HEAD switch is in? If so, please can we
apply this and then I can line up and attempt to push the outstanding
patches to the new github master later this evening.
