The patches have been merged in different trees:

- http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git;a=commit;h=41dfaa934c5d866d626de9bea785e6168524a47e
- http://ftp.arm.linux.org.uk/git/gitweb.cgi?p=linux-2.6-arm.git;a=commit;h=7dbaa466780a754154531b44c2086f6618cee3a8

3.2 will have the first patch but the second is for 3.3.
