1) We need to be able to use git bisect to identify regressions, and as
such the kernel need to be buildable and functional after each applied
patch.

2) DeviceTree source (dts) changes enters the kernel through different
maintainer paths than the DeviceTree binding and driver changes, and
therefore at different times. In some cases the .dtb file is also
delivered separately from the kernel, which means people might be
running an old .dtb for a considerable amount of time after your change.
As such your driver changes needs to be compatible with both the new and
the old DeviceTree binding.
