You need to stop stepping on each others toes. There is no way that your changes to those crazy clock-data files should constantly result in those annoying conflicts, just because different people in different ARM trees do some masturbatory renaming of some random device. Seriously. That usb_musb_init() thing in arch/arm/mach-omap2/usb-musb.c also seems to be totally insane. I wonder what kind of insanity I'm missing just because I don't happen to see the merge conflicts, just because people were lucky enough to happen to not touch the same file within a few lines. Somebody needs to get a grip in the ARM community. I do want to do these merges, just to see how screwed up things are, but guys, this is just ridiculous. The pure amount of crazy churn is annoying in itself, but when I then get these "independent" pull requests from four different people, and they touch the same files, that indicates that something is wrong. And stop the crazy renaming already! Just leave it off. Don't rename boards and drivers "just because", at least not when there clearly are clashes. There's no point. I'm not even talking about the file renames (which happened and can also make it "fun" to try to resolve the conflicts when somebody else then makes _other_ changes), but about the stupid "change human-readable names in board files just to annoy whoever needs to merge the crap". Somebody in the ARM community really needs to step up and tell people to stop dicking around. (I'm replying to the omap pull request, because that's the one I did last, but I don't know who to "blame". I don't care. It really doesn't matter. I realize thar ARM vendors do crazy shit and haven't figured out this whole "platform" thing yet, but you guys need to push back on the people sending you crap).
