Running kernel-3.6.0-0.rc1.git6.1.fc18.ppc64 on the latest Fedora 18 alpha build located at http://ppc.koji.fedoraproject.org/stage/f18-20120823.1/ppc64/iso/Fedora-18-ppc64-DVD.iso
I see the following kernel message:

Where did it come from? I don't see it posted to netdev or lkml at all, and it's missing a Signed-of-by, etc.

Oh, and as a general reminder, f18/rawhide is still using the 3.6-rcX kernels, so if the fix gets upstream we'll pick it up automatically. I don't mind carrying it as a patch for a brief amount of time, but it really needs to be posted upstream. When that's done, just throw a link to it here and I'll add it.
hey Josh, I will get Santi to update information here.
I wrote this patch and I am the maintainer of the ibmveth driver. I don't have a commit yet, but i will push it soon to mainline and to -stable.
