Hi Olof,

Some of the driver cleanups are dependent to core QE changes.  Some
maybe not but could have contextual dependency with other patches.  I
will be easier to have them all go in from the same place.  We have
collected the ack and confirmation from all the related maintainers.
For the ucc_uart it is not a formal ack.  Quoted the confirmation from
Greg below:

That's fine, all are now dropped from my tree.  Li Yang, feel free to
take them in your tree if you want to.
