Tricky one, yes it could but this DTS fix, will only actually 'fix' the issue if
the corresponding driver updates to allow secondary addresses to be parsed are
also backported.

It should be safe to back port the dts fix without the driver updates, but the
addresses specified by this patch will simply be ignored.

Thus if this is marked with the fixes tag the corresponding patch "drm: adv7511:
Add support for i2c_new_secondary_device" should also be marked.

It looks like that patch has yet to be picked up by the DRM subsystem, so how
about I bundle both of these two patches together in a repost along with the
fixes tag.

In fact, I don't think the ADV7511 dt-bindings update has made any progress
either. (dt-bindings: adv7511: Extend bindings to allow specifying slave map
addresses). The media tree variants for the adv7604 have already been picked up
by Mauro I believe though.

I presume it would be acceptable for this dts patch (or rather all three patches
mentioned) to get integrated through the DRM tree ?
