Hmm, I'm still not totally sure how to proceed. What do you mean with
"make a note"?

I understand that I can't change the commits, but is it ok for me to now
merge the for-l-o-3.5 branch into my master branch (which is my "stable"
branch, for which I'll send a pull request)?

If the same commits are both in my tree and in l-o (or arm-soc), doesn't
it mean that the commits seem to come into Linus's tree from whoever
happens to send their pull request first? Then again, does it matter..

And if there are conflicts in the board files between for-l-o-3.5 and
some other commits, and you or Arnd resolve those for l-o or arm-soc,
what happens when the same, but unresolved, commits come from my pull
request? 

Sorry if this should be obvious, but I haven't done such merging before
and I'd rather not mess it up =).
