Subject: pull-request: ieee802154 for net 2019-04-25

Hello Dave.

An update from ieee802154 for your *net* tree.

Another fix from Kangjie Lu to ensure better checking regmap updates in the
mcr20a driver. Nothing else I have pending for the final release.

If there are any problems let me know.


During the preparation of this pull request a workflow question on my side came
up and wonder if you (or some subsystem maintainer sending you pull requests)
does have a comment on this. The ieee802154 subsystem has a low activity in the
number of patches coming through it. I still wanted to pull from your net tree
regularly to test if changes have implications to it. During this pulls I often
end up with merge of the remote tracking branch. Which in the end could mean
that I would have something like 3-4 merge commits in my tree with only one
actual patch I want to send over to you. Feels and looks kind of silly to be

How do other handle this? Just merge once every rc? Merge just before sending a
pull request? Never merge, wait for Dave to pull and merge and do a pull of his
tree directly afterwards?
