I think patch 2 is a bug fix as well, but I'd like someone from NXP to
comment.

So I thought this would go through Li Yang's tree. That's where my
previous QE related patches have gone through, and at least some need
some input from NXP folks - and what MAINTAINERS suggests. So not
marking the patches with net or net-next was deliberate. But I'm happy
to rearrange and send to net/net-next as appropriate if that's what you
and Li Yang can agree to.

Thanks,
Rasmus
