What does this mean?  Would you be more specific?

The patch "libata-acpi: add ata port runtime D3Cold support" by Lin Ming
introduced a function ata_acpi_wake_dev in libata-acpi.c, and only lives
in libata-next tree but not scsi-misc tree.
Another minor issue is, I need to use the can_power_off and
wakeup_by_user flag of the scsi_device structure in sr patches, but
they are all introduced in patches in libata-next tree, so I have to
re-define them in this patch set. Will cause conflict if James send
these sr patches to Linus. Any way to avoid this?

Linus said he just merged the libata patches, so they should appear in the torvalds/linux.git as soon as he pushes out (in the next 12 hours, I'm guessing).

Up to James how he wants to coordinate after that... he might pull in Linus's tree into scsi-misc or another solution.
