These general comments apply to all 3 of your patches:

(1) Please follow the general guildelines for sending patches, like
described in Documentation/process/5.Posting.rst in your kernel tree like:
- send output of "git format-patch"
- signed-off-by line
- full name as "from"
- ideally use "git send-email"
- no html mails
- no mangled content (your mail client replaced all tabs with spaces)

(2) Please keep things to lower cases. So name your board for
example rk3288-tinker-s.dts

(3) When adding a board, please also add a corresponding entry to

(4) When adding a board variant - please don't simply copy devicetrees.
Instead ideally create a shared dtsi, that both the tinker.dts
and tinker-s can include.

For reference you can look at the Rock960 CE+EE patchset posted today:

(5) Please add lists and maintainers. I'm missing
- linux-arm-kernel at lists.infradead.org
- Devicetree binding maintainers:
  - robh+dt at kernel.org
  - mark.rutland at arm.com
