If we were talking about something new, specifically new and unapproved DT bindings,
it should be separate patches. However, that is not the case here. The DT bindings
are well established. Sure, we could be pedantic and request a split into two
patches. However, the only benefit of that would be more work for the maintainers,
ie Wim and myself (including me having to send this e-mail). I don't really see
the point of that.

I have already sent my Reviewed-by:, and I don't intend to withdraw it.
