Oh right, it looks OK then. The series,
Acked-by: Stephen Warren <swarren at wwwdotorg.org>

One could reduce the duplication by moving the common block into the 
common .dtsi file, but using a board-defined #define for the polarity:


#include "bcm2835-rpi.dtsi"


&hdmi {
	hpd-gpios = <&gpio 46 RPI_HDMI_HPD_POLARITY>;

... although this case is so tiny I'm not sure there's any benefit 
trying to unify it like that right now.
