Yes didn't I drop the patch and pointed out it breaks the build?

Guys, please stop doing this. Do not merge driver code that has
not been sitting in linux next at least a week. And for the dts
changes, please make sure you have proper acks.

And now we have yet another merge window where things unexpectedly
break during the merge window because of untested driver changes.

Please repost the fix and I'll ack it and you guys send a new pull
request to fix it ASAP explaining how it happened.
