Absolutely, I did it differently for the Cygnus SoC to help Scott with
his initial submission, but in the future, I would rather have Hauke,
Scott and myself send separate pull requests, leaving you with just
potential conflicts for arch/arm/mach-bcm/{Makefile,Kconfig}.

If this model is not desirable, I have no problems aggregating all
mach-bcm changes to appropriate pull requests, whether that means
pulling from Hauke and Scott directly, or compiling pull requests myself
as long as you guys CC me on your patches.
