First of all, there is a new version (v2) of the patch (series) to
address review comments.

Secondly, as Arnd pointed it out, you shouldn't apply this single
patch, because it depends on the first 3 patches in the series to
work.  Applying this single patch will result in a non-functional
gpmi driver.

As I mentioned in the cover letter, I prefer to have your ACK on
the patch to merge the series through arm-soc tree as a whole.  If
you insist that you merge the patch through your tree, I can also
create a topic branch containing the first 3 patches, as Arnd suggests.
Please just let me know.
