We can certainly argue who started which tone here. From my perspective
I kindly asked Jerome to fix his node order on IRC, he said okay, but
neither he nor any of you ever sent such patches. (This was back when we
had an actual mismerge.) Weeks later I grudgingly sent the v1 cleanup
series myself, but instead of thanking me for doing "your" work, I was
greeted with unfriendly opposition and - yes, frustratingly is a word
here - put my efforts elsewhere. Neil's actions - who is neither author
nor maintainer here - of copying an opinionated personal and partially
wrong statement into a dozen neutral patches was highly offensive to me
and further escalated things. Stating his opinion, which he is welcome
to do, once would has sufficed.

Also what this "my" is about - and that should give you thought - is
that you guys added nodes to the Vega .dtsi file without adding any
BayLibre or other copyright. To someone downloading a tarball without
git history, that makes it look as if _I_ misordered those nodes in the
file that carries my name. So I would kindly suggest that you add your
copyright when making non-trivial additions.
