SubjectRe: [PATCH] devicetree: Move include prefixes from arch to separate directory
Hi Olof,

change itself looks good to me and also works, so

But we also have an overlooked glitch in the new rk3399-gru devicetrees
that surfaces with this patch applied.

../arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/rk3399-gru-kevin.dts:47:57: fatal error: include/dt-bindings/input/linux-event-codes.h: File or directory not found
#include <include/dt-bindings/input/linux-event-codes.h>

so need the patch from Ian Campbell
"arm64: dts: rockchip: Drop explicit "include/" prefix from #include" [0]
in front to not cause other build breakage.

So if applicable, both patches should go in together, with the gru patch
in front and I've added my Reviewed-by there if someone else is doing it.
