There actually appears to be one more dependency, so four patches in total.
What we could also do is to rebase the omap3isp DT support set on top of
Russell's single patch. This way there probably would be no merge conflict,
assuming the patches are exactly the same, and you have no other patches
changing the omap3isp driver.
Alternatively we could postpone the DT support for the omap3isp, but I'd
rather want to avoid that.
