Hi Rafael,

The first version of this series was sent on 4th of October and its been
~2 months now that this series is getting reviewed. All of the stuff has
already been seen by Stephen and others.

Mark had some particular concerns in V3, which I discussed with him
over IRC and resolved. The DT bindings are already Acked by Rob
and Stephen otherwise.

Will it be possible to get this merged for 4.10-rc1, as no one has raised
any objections so far? Looks like Stephen is a bit busy at the moment,
and is unable to review stuff for now.

I don't want to get this delayed by another merge cycle. If there are any
shortcomings reported later by others, I can always go fix them very
