For 2836 we need the firmware driver, dt-clocks driver, and extension of
the interrupt controller.  I also need to rebase the 2836 series to
handle the dtsi sharing better.  Unless getting review and acceptance
speeds up massively, I'd be skeptical of it even for 4.3 -- just mbox
took 2 months to land, and firmware, dt-clocks, bcm2836 intc, and
bcm2836 dtsi are each of similar scale.
