Ujjwal, I suggest that you continue to wait if you get any feedback from 
Masahiro-san within the next two weeks (although the merge window) and if
not, try to rebase to the the next rc1 and resend this patchset with 
Nathan's feedback tags added.

The merge window is busy time for maintainers; in the meantime, you might
look into if the build target 'make tools/clean' works on the current 
release and if there are fixes getting merged that fix that.
