Good question! Actually I would prefer to go through Mike Turquette
clock tree, if he feel it is OK of course.
My idea is then get the Ack from Rafael for cpufreq patches and from
Samuel for the mfd patches.

The reason for doing this in a quite complicated manner is that my
soon upcoming clock and mfd patches will functionality wise depend on
these patches, and don't want to be sitting around and waiting for a
new rc before being able to push the next series.

Kind regards
