I think it makes sense to not inflict the new code on everyone until at
least a few have tried it, with full builds and atf runs on various
architectures.  I read jmmv's note as encouraging people to try it, and
then after any falout is fixed, flipping the switch.   I think this is
courteous to fellow developers, compared to just landing it when it's
not known to be at least 99% ok.  (I'm not saying I think it's broken; I
suspect it isn't - but our multiarch system tends to be unforgiving.)
