I understand that it makes sense for your platform do turn on the option
at the same time as adding the DT entries, but there's nothing that should
require them to go in together (they just won't be used until both branches are

We try to keep our categories of patches separate in the arm-soc tree;
keeping SoC changes, driver changes, DT changes and defconfig changes
is from a general code hygiene point of view beneficial and we encourage all
platform maintainers to follow those guidelines.

I also sympathize that it's extra annoying having to split just three
patches across two branches. So, if it's easier we can just cherry-pick
apart the patches here across the branches (your comment about next
coverage makes me suspect you have no direct downstream users of this
branch). If that's OK, let me know and I'll do that tomorrow.
