I think Arnd's main concern is about merge conflict, which shouldn't be
a problem for this particular case.  The change on dts file is pretty
trivial.  And I assume this is a fix to be landed on mainline before
-rc5 or so.  Then I can rebase my DT branch on top of it.  That said,
merge conflict is not really a problem for this patch.  Arnd?
