I've picked the patch and hope to get it included in v5.16.

I do however not understand why the commit message so clearly defines
that the only device including pmk8350 is the sc7280 idp when the
sm8350-mtp.dts contains the following line:

#include "pmk8350.dtsi"


Perhaps I'm missing something obvious, but I took the liberty of also
enabling the RTC in the SM8350 MTP.

Bjorn
