Yeah, sorry about it showing up late.

I'm trying to balance it because I do feel frustration from the
contributors that the Qualcomm branches are "locked down" for 4-5 weeks
per cycle.

It's fairly common that things such as PMICs are reused between new and
old platforms, so I fear that such a split will cause unnecessary
conflicts between my trees.

Perhaps I should just send multiple pull requests throughout the cycle?
