I've not looked very deeply at this patch, but I completely agree that
we cannot block new platforms on infrastructure that isn't remotely
mergable at this point in time.
However, imx6 is a new platform. There isn't any non-DT board support
code to continue to support. At the very least, the configurable
parameters, like what is passed into mx6q_clocks_init() should be
obtained from the device tree (maybe it already does this though, I
haven't looked that closely).
In general, I say merge it.
