I didn't realize that this would show up as all new commits. The reason
why this happens is because the first commit in the tree is a fix for an
issue for which Uwe had sent an alternative patch to you directly for
inclusion in v5.10.

After going over the patches again as I was preparing the pull request,
I realized that the commit message was no longer accurate, so I changed
the commit message of the first commit, which then caused all of the
subsequent patches (i.e. all of them) to be rewritten.

The only change that hasn't been in linux-next for at least a week is a
bugfix I merged two days ago. The rest should be identical except for
the commit message on that first commit.

For reference, here's a diff on my for-next branch that the pull request
is based on, compared to what it was like a week ago:

	$ git diff for-next@...ays}..pwm/for-5.11-rc1
	diff --git a/drivers/pwm/pwm-sun4i.c b/drivers/pwm/pwm-sun4i.c
	index cc1eb0818648..ce5c4fc8da6f 100644
	--- a/drivers/pwm/pwm-sun4i.c
	+++ b/drivers/pwm/pwm-sun4i.c
	@@ -294,12 +294,8 @@ static int sun4i_pwm_apply(struct pwm_chip *chip, struct pwm_device *pwm,
		ctrl |= BIT_CH(PWM_CLK_GATING, pwm->hwpwm);
	-       if (state->enabled) {
	+       if (state->enabled)
			ctrl |= BIT_CH(PWM_EN, pwm->hwpwm);
	-       } else {
	-               ctrl &= ~BIT_CH(PWM_EN, pwm->hwpwm);
	-               ctrl &= ~BIT_CH(PWM_CLK_GATING, pwm->hwpwm);
	-       }
		sun4i_pwm_writel(sun4i_pwm, ctrl, PWM_CTRL_REG);

And that corresponds to the topmost patch.

I hope this clarifies things, and sorry for not mentioning this in the
pull request.
