I agree that a group of patches should go together in
most cases.

Because the arm-soc tree wants dts changes separately in
general. The dts changes are considered firmware describing
hardware. And it makes it possible to split the arm-soc pile
of patches into multiple pull requests. In theory there
should be no dependency between dts changes and driver
changes, but in reality that's not always the case :)

What I can do is set up a separate branch with just this
patch on top of the dts changes that the arm-soc guys can
then merge towards the end of the merge cycle. If that
works for you, let me know and I'll do it.
