That ordering is awkward for us. driver->dt->soc->driver->defconfig is
not the way we do it.

I'll merge them into a next/late branch together, and we might or might not
send it in this merge window depending on how it goes.

The lesson to learn here (for us and you) is that if there is complex
contents, getting it sent in very early is important: rc2/rc3 is
ideal. We're likely to be less tolerant of messy dependencies as we start
to approach -rc6 and already have a lot of things merged up. We might
also have locked into ordering between branches by then that doesn't
match what you've used.
