I have already sent the pull requests for the dts files to Linus, so that's
not changing any more for this time, and he will just have to fix it up
when he pulls both branches.

In the future, please send all dts updates to soc at (after the
binding and driver is merged) rather than together with the device drivers.

Sending the devicetree binding updates is a little trickier, as we tend to
want them merged both with the driver and the dts files. One way to do
this is to have a shared branch for the bindings updates, and then base both
the driver branch and the dts branch on top of the same commits for that.

A simpler alternative is to merge only the driver and binding changes in
one release, and send the dts changes for the following release. This
obviously takes longer to complete.
