I've removed it from the arm-soc for-next branch now and won't push it
unless you specifically ask me to.

There is no point in arguing about who miscommunicated, or in assuming
evil intentions.

The rule for the arm-soc tree is very simple: if someone asks for a
branch to be included and it looks reasonable to me, it goes in.
If else someone has reasonable concerns over the code, it gets
removed again until the concerns are all resolved. Judging what
is reasonable is of course the hard part, but 90% of the time it's
pretty obvious.
