Okay, out of your patches, I would like to queue up the following
for submission into -rc kernels:

drm/i2c: tda998x: fix bad value in the AIF
drm/i2c: tda998x: check the CEC device creation
drm/i2c: tda998x: free the CEC device on encoder_destroy
drm/i2c: tda998x: force the page register at startup time
drm/i2c: tda998x: set the PLL division factor in range 0..3
drm/i2c: tda998x: fix the ENABLE_SPACE register

since these fix real bugs.  Moving them to the front of the queue isn't
that big a deal (I've done it here in my git tree - yes, there were a
few conflicts, but nothing serious.)

I'll also consider these for -rc too:

drm/i2c: tda998x: use HDMI constants
drm/i2c: tda998x: add the active aspect in HDMI AVI frame
drm/i2c: tda998x: change the frequence in the audio channel

if we have reports of display devices affected by the info frame errors.

As far as the last summary line goes, I'll change it to:

	"Use ALSA IEC958 definitions and update audio frequency"

Note that in general, bug fixes should always be towards the beginning
of a patch series, so that they can be applied independently of the
remainder of the development, which also makes them easier to backport
to stable kernels if that's deemed necessary.

As for the remainder, I think moving the DT documentation patch
immediately after the addition of DT code (or even just before it) is
good form.

So, in summary, I'm pretty happy with this again - and it's all been
tested here with no apparant detrimental effects.  All committed and
queued up here:


If you want to pull it back to check:

  git://ftp.arm.linux.org.uk/~rmk/linux-cubox.git tda998x-devel

I'm proposing to send everything up to the tda998x-fixes tag next week
for 3.13-rc kernels.

Rob, do you want to provide any acks for this or are you happy?

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: 5.8Mbps down 500kbps up.  Estimation
in database were 13.1 to 19Mbit for a good line, about 7.5+ for a bad.
Estimate before purchase was "up to 13.2Mbit".
