For TMU patches, I've asked Eduardo to provide topic branch for
'include/dt-bindings/thermal/thermal_exynos.h' has been added via thermal tree
because if I can't apply the patch in Samsung tree for arm-soc, kernel build
breakage will be happened. But I couldn't get Eduardo's topic branch.
For HDMI patches, I thought the DT changes have a dependency with "drm/exynos:
add support for 'hdmi' clock" so waited for its applying then in drm tree. But
I couldn't send it to arm-soc after that...
I asked about the situation (late DT changes?) when I sent a pull-request, then
I couldn't get a access my kernel.org because of biz. trip to China :(

As you know, basically I tried to make a clear branch for pull-request but in
that case, I couldn't find a solution. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I hope v4.0 can support them properly.
