Hmm yeah I guess I kept all the 81xx stuff in a single branch because of the
earlier largeish set of 81xx fixes that had interlaced dts and SoC changes
that had to be in a specific order to keep system booting because of bugs in
the dts defined clocks.
If you want to, I can respin these patches into two branches, one for dts and
one for SoC changes. Probably both branches have to be based on the earlier
branch "omap-for-v4.5/81xx-fixes-signed" to avoid merge conflicts though.
