Next spin of sam460ex pathces with changes according to review and
some new patches.

So, the sm501 patches I don't really have the technical knowledge to
review, and I'm a little uncomfortable taking them through my tree,
since they aren't strictly related to ppc.

OK, since the sm501 is also used on SH it's not PPC only so I think you can ignore them for now and just take the other patches and I can submit the sm501 related patches as a separate series (although all these changes are to improve sam460ex emulation).

It looks like you're the only person that's made substantive changes
to sm501 lately, though.  So, given I haven't heard screaming, I think
it's fair to assume that either you know what you're doing, or you're
the only person that cares about sm501 anyway.

So, I think we should make you sm501 maintainer.

I don't feel confident enough to take on maintainership of this device but hope maybe Peter could help as he did before to get the patches in not involving your tree.

Specifically I think you should:
 * Fix the compile breakage I pointed out elsewhere

Thanks, I'll check and fix this.

 * Split out your sm501 patches

OK, as above I'll send these as separate series, you can ignore all sm501: prefixed patches from this v4 series.

 * Prepend a patch adding it to MAINTAINERS with yourself as
   maintainer (whether you call it "Maintained" or "Odd Fixes" is up
   to your level of dedication)
 * Send this new series direct to Peter Maydell, CC me, Gerd Hoffman
   <address@hidden> and the SH maintainer(s) (as well as the lists
   and whoever else you think's appropriate)
 * I'll reply, making the case above to Peter for your

With any luck, from there on you'll be able to send sm501 pull
requests directly.

But if there's an other way I'd rather cc those people for review and to take care of pull requests without me becoming maintainer as I don't have any experience with that.
