Subject: Re: [PATCH v6 00/22] tracing: bootconfig: Boot-time tracing and Extra boot config
Date: Sun, 19 Jan 2020 23:20:37 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200119232037.c46321eac70bf288b42f493f@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <157867220019.17873.13377985653744804396.stgit@devnote2>

Hi Steve,

Thanks for pick this series on your tree. I would like to fix some patches
according to Randy's comments. Should I update this series or just incremental
updates on top of your tree?

Thank you,
