Hello Andrew
Right, with all that preparation work I've forgotten to Cc the
GPIO-subsystem maintainers. Thanks for noticing this.

Regarding the 60-patches. Please see my response to Jakub' post in the
first series. To cut it short let's start working with that patchset:
Link: https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20210208135609.7685-1-Sergey.Semin@baikalelectronics.ru/
I'll rebase and resubmit the rest of the work when the time comes.

Regarding splitting the series up. I don't see a problem in just
sending the cover-letter patch and actual GPIO-related patches to
the GPIO-maintainers with no need to have them added to Cc in the rest
of the series. That's a normal practice. Splitting is not really
required. But since I have to split the very first patchset anyway.
I'll split this one up too, when it comes to have this part of changes
