Ok, thank you for the advice. I will do so in the next pull request.

For the drivers/of/address.c patch I used to have an Ack [1] from
Grant Likely who told me to merge it through arm-soc. But I deleted
the Ack after changing the patch because of some comments from Russel
King [2].
So at the moment I don't have any Ack anymore.

I have an Ack for the clocksource driver from Thomas [0]. Daniel
wanted to merge it through his branch, but because of the changes in
the OF patch he never did.

So I suppose I have to get some comments from the OF maintainer about
the patch, before we can go on with the pull request.

Sorry for the noise.
