Right, I'll move the version change to patch #1 in V3. 

However,  the entire series is required (except a few patches not prefixed with FW 8.42.2.0 ) to be
taken to work correctly with the FW.
Our FW is not backward/forward compatible. I have mentioned this in the cover letter, the split into smaller patches and prefix with
FW 8.42.2.0 is to ease review and was done due to previous feedback that it is very difficult to review the FW patches:

https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg58810.html

I am fine with squashing all the patches that are required to working with FW8.42.2.0 into one single patch if that is required and acceptable,
But I believe that would make reviewing the changes more difficult.

Thanks,
Michal
