Thanks. That is fine. Btw, these sort of additional information could be
added to the cover letter to give a better picture of what you are 
trying to do and why.

No, I am asking about the lines removed above. i.e,

  -&adsp {
  -	status = "okay";
  -	firmware-name = "qcom/sm8250/adsp.mbn";

It doesn't seem to be added back in the patch. So that means, the DT
lost those lines, without any mention of that in the description of
the patch. Moreover, the lines do not look like they were anything to
do with CoreSight. This is why I mentioned they look like "unrelated".
