Best is to order it soc->dt instead of dt->soc, at least in this case. We tend
to sort the branches soc->boards->dt, so that fits.

There's also the alternative to base as much as possible on top of the old dt
branch, and only the bare minimum that depends on the soc branch in a separate
one (that we could even add on top of soc if truly needed). Note that it might
break down if you need yet another set of patches on top though.

For now I have added this to a next/dt2 branch to avoid the circular
