This is awesome to see, thanks for starting the platform conversion and cleanup.

I have some comments on the branch organization to make it fit the
arm-soc branch setups a bit better:

I think it could be a good idea to split off the cleanups and fixes to
a separate branch. For the other patches there seems to be enough for
at least a 'dt' branch and either a multi-platform topic branch or a
'boards' topic branch -- probably the former. So see my annotation
below for suggested sorting (I didn't check for

above are cleanup

Hmm. cleanup or a separate multi-platform branch

above are dt, last maybe board but it's one of the few patches of that
topic so can be grouped with dt

both of those are multi-platform or board branch
