I do not think you need a v11 just to remove the drivers/acpi/arm64
directory creation, you need to get Daniel/Thomas review/ack on
the respective patches though, I do not see the point of churning
out another series just because drivers/acpi/arm64 is now created
in the IORT patch series. If v10 is ok you will rebase it on top of
Tomasz's series and mention the dependency in the respective pull

If there is need for a v11 following Daniel/Thomas review yes,
you can proceed as above.
