A couple of days back I said that I'm ok pushing these drivers.
Although they don't have "arch/ia64" or "include/asm-ia64"
prefixes, they are only used by ia64.  I'm even ok with the
qla1280.c change as the final version is only touching code
inside #ifdef CONFIG_IA64_{GENERIC|SN2) ... but I would like
to see a sign-off from the de-facto maintainer Christoph for
this file.

This is not a land-grab to expand my responsibilities, it just
seems to be the right thing to do to coordinate getting all
these interdependent pieces into the tree at the same time.

However ... there's a thread on LKML wailing about huge changes
going into "-rc" releases.  Since there still seems to be
a lively discussion about the the right way to do the pci_root
bits of this patch, I'm very inclined to save this till *after*
Linus release 2.6.9-final.  If there's a _mostly_ clean patch
presented to me before 2.6.10-rc1 shows up, I'll push that and
allow for some follow-on tidy-up patches to clean up.
