Good question, we need to agree on a strategy.

There are 3 patch sets to consider here.

1* My patch fixing the UUID ordering bug. It must go in first and
   immediately, as it fixes a regression and will have to be backported
   to stable branches.

2* 2 older patches from Ivan which are currently in your efi-next tree
   if I'm not mistaken. Both were based on an old tree so they do not
   apply cleanly on kernel v4.0, I had to fix them up manually. I have
   no idea if git would be able to merge them properly, as the fix
   above changed the context even more.

3* The 3 new patches from Ivan which I am reviewing now, which are not
   applied in any public tree AFAIK.

I don't really care who picks these patches up and sends them to Linus,
but I think they should all follow the same route so that Linus has as
little merge work to do as possible. So either you pick them all, or I
do. If I do, you'll have to drop the 2 patches you have in efi-next.
Again I'm fine either way, so please let me know what makes your life
easier and let's do that.
