I just took another look at the series.  It seems that there is no
build-time dependency between regulator and platform patches.  So I
think we can handle the series like:

 - You apply patch #3, #4 and #5 on regulator tree;
 - I apply the reset on IMX tree.

There shouldn't be any build or run time regression on either tree, and
the feature that the series adds will be available when both trees get
merged together on -next or Linus tree.

@Oleksij Is my understanding above correct?
