Please don't merge device tree ("dts") patches, i.e. patches 9-12. We will
merge them through the sunxi / armsoc tree. Having them in separate trees
introduces conflicts when we have other stuff going through our tree.

Corentin, it's best to lay out the plan to get patches merges in the cover
letter, specifically which maintainer should take which patches, or if an
immutable tag/branch is preferred, when things can't be separated cleanly.
This helps other subsystem maintainers that don't routinely deal with armsoc.

Also, we probably can't merge the last patch that removes the PHY code,
since we have to support old device trees.
