Yes it is ok to move Koesch to the same meta-renesas commit.
It's basically what you suggested previously but unless I say different, or testing
shows a need to be different, let's assume that by default a change for one of the

OK thanks. I talked to Japan this morning about the Silk loaner boards.
Boards are allocated to you and are making their way through export control. 
Export control can be a slow process, big companies and law are sometimes uneasy 
bed fellows, but boards are making their way through the system.
