Hi Florian,

Regarding the delta, hopefully the following stats give a rough idea:

I see 105 patches in the mti branch with the following total diffstat:
182 files changed, 18614 insertions(+), 1210 deletions(-)

With the help of git log's cherry-mark feature I count 66 of those
patches corresponding to a patch in mainline since v3.10 (the largest of
which is Aaro's Octeon USB HCD support patch, with 9992 insertions). 42
of these upstream patches were authored by somebody at IMG.

Out of the rest (patches not in mainline), the total insertions is 8175
and total deletions is 826. The largest of these patches by
insertions are:

1) 4e5dd4434d94 MIPS: MIPS32R2 Segment/EVA support upto 3GB
36 files changed, 3819 insertions(+), 173 deletions(-)

2) 0d6f34364a6e MIPS: VPE: Re-implement as writes to a pseudo-device.
4 files changed, 826 insertions(+), 101 deletions(-)

3) 6442e3516c84 MIPS: -mfp64 for abi=o32 ELF binaries support.
17 files changed, 517 insertions(+), 77 deletions(-)

4) 65b4e451fc32 MIPS: Add proAPTIV CPU support.
21 files changed, 505 insertions(+), 44 deletions(-)

I'm optimistic the out-of-mainline delta will drop significantly over time.

Cheers
James
