wouldn't it be easier to just take patches 1,2,3,4 through your tree and let 
patches 5,6,7 go through arm-soc?

There is no compile-time dependency between the two parts, so they will come 
together nicely in linux-next and during the merge-window.

Traditionally we usually take the DT changes through arm-soc, but as
long as we share the branch we might be ok. We tend to stick them in
different branches in our tree though, so rockchip will be a little
mis-sorted this release. Not a big deal, and we can deal with it.

So I'd assume splitting the patchset this way might be a nice solution?
