I see this merge window has been a touch confusing on the broadcom side, and we
should probably have pointed this out sooner:

We normally prefer to separate out arch/arm/mach* changes as the usual soc
changes, and keep drivers/soc and other drivers/* changes in separate branches,
usually merged through our 'drivers' branch instead.

I don't see what's "SoC" about the patch in this branch, and I don't think it's
dependent on the other contents in previous SoC branches. So let's merge this
as a separate driver branch, if that's ok?

In other words, please send a new pull request that contains this without the
SoC base, and we'll merge it through our next/drivers. Or, if you prefer, I
can cherry-pick it out myself. I'll leave the choice up to you and what works
for you in your workflow.
