Sorry, I'd rather not pull it like this, because that would result in a
broken branch on my side that fails to build until it gets merged with
the other one.

I think the best way to handle this is for you to:

- start a branch on the afa86d264a7c commit that you already sent me
for 4.20.
- merge the soc-fsl-fix-v4.19-2 branch that you sent me for 4.19 into
that branch
- rebase all patches from tags/soc-fsl-next-v4.20-2 on top of the merge
- resend the pull request with the new branch

This will result in a bisectable (i.e. each commit builds and works) branch
that also merges cleanly with my fixes branch.

Generally speaking, every branch you send must work standalone,
and each commit in that branch can only depend on work that
comes earlier in that branch.
