Hi Lennert, your contributions to ARM Linux have not gone unnoticed. Nice 
to see you here!

The diffs look nice so IMHO should simply be applied, just that you'll 
probably have to open BZ entries for each and every one of them and push 
each individual maintainer to just do it...

A bit off-topic questions:

1. What is the target system(s) you're using? I for one have a very vague
    understanding of what lab boards etc may be used for running ARM

2. As I understand it you employ the Fedora/x86 style of not using a
    cross-compiler to build these packages, but rather build them with ARM
    on ARM. I am aware of some RPM derivatives like those used by
    MontaVista, that employ a cross-compiler instead. What are your thought
    on these issues? Have you tested both solutions and come to the
    conclusion that the all-ARM-enclosed build system is the way to go?
