I've merged them now into the respective branches. However, I only
merged the usb-fixes branch for the first two (next/soc and next/drivers)
and decided to cherry-pick the patches from the other two branches
into next/dt and next/defconfig, to minimize the amount of backmerges
when the changes in those branches are clearly not meant to be useful
by themselves without at least the first branch merged in as well.

Please follow up with one more patch to enable bcm2836 in multi_v7_defconfig.
