You don't need any patches. What was the error exactly?

That would be great yes.

You can have the same kind of comment for pretty much all DT
lines. you could for example have on the pinctrl property just above
the comment that the I2C2 on that boards are tied to those pins. But
that's just redundant, and the SNR would be pretty bad if we were to
do it everywhere.

You have the gsl1680 two times here, so grep would find it either way.
