When you say "the changes" I'm now assuming you mean "the OMAP port".
Since pullups for that are in the queue, barring some unexpected problem
it will be in 4.0.

Now that you're asking about one specific change, it is possible to
answer the (now-simple) question!  Yes, as Michael and Matt noted, it
will be in 4.0.

You can probably get lots of other changes into 4.0 as well, but depending
on when you ask, it is possible that some changes you wanted in 4.0 may
end up in 4.1, so better to ask sooner than later.
