That should usually go below the --- line so it doesn't make it into the
final patch description.

I wonder if this patch should rename bindings/arm/bcm/ to
bindings/arm/brcm/ too?

In a patch of mine that deprecated a property, Mark wondered if it would
make sense to mention the old deprecated DT content simply to document
that it existed, so that old DTs would still make sense when checking
the documentation. I wonder if the same argument applies to this patch?
