It seems to be a misunderstanding in this case, since there are other
additions in the stm32 tree this release cycle so we should only pick
up DTS changes through our tree.

By now, I think it should be pretty well known that we nearly never
want DTS contents merged through any other tree. Ever.

So, please revoke your branch and take those out. We'll take them
through the normal flow. Thanks!
