Note that we (in arm-soc) normally put drivers and DT changes into
separate branches and send a pull request for each branch separately
(though usually on the same day).

We expect there to be no runtime dependency between the DT changes
and the driver changes other than requiring both to make use of
the added features.

Kevin/Martin: in case this one does have a runtime dependency,
please we can put both halves into the next/drivers branch in
the correct order to ensure that they are applied together, and
describe the dependency in the cover letter for the pull request.
