Wait a minute! Why are you putting a patch set to modify core devicetree in the middle of a driver series. Please pull it out to a separate series. I'll try to look at the patches, as they are in this series, sometime tomorrow. I have a vague memory of unresolved issues from the last time they were proposed.
