Sure, I think I can split this patch set in three parts.
First one would be porting the necessary Linux changes of ACPI 5.0~6.0.
ACPI 5.0: Add new/changed tables to headers (only changes of Generic
Interrupt and Generic Distributor and some changes already exist)
ACPICA/ARM: ACPI 5.1: Update for MADT changes.
ACPICA: ACPI 6.0: Add changes for MADT table.
ACPICA: ACPI 6.0: Add values for MADT GIC version field
ACPICA/ARM: ACPI 5.1: Update for FADT changes.
ACPICA: ACPI 6.0: Add changes for FADT table
ACPICA/ARM: ACPI 5.1: Update for GTDT table changes.
ACPICA: Headers: Add GTDT flag definitions for the timer subtable.
ACPICA: ACPI 6.0: Add support for STAO table
Second one as you suggest would be the series which split DT codes from
And the last one would be the series which add ACPI support for Xen on
ARM and prepare the necessary things for Dom0.
