Agree that bindings should be in linux-next before device-tree files are
merged.

Ok.

I think you can rely on the author to tell you when something is
actually ready to be merged (and you can tell him/her to remind you).

For the review itself, doing it by having a look at the dependencies
mentioned in the cover letter (like available for this series) should be
good enough (I feel).

I am not sure if there is a need to post an "RFC version", and then
follow it up with an actual "PATCH version" once dependencies are
cleared though.

Thanks,
Sekhar
