In that case I think its safe to add the fixes tag and take the DTS patch
via the renesas tree. Perhaps applying it for v4.18 and allowing automatic
backporting to take its course is the cleanest option.

Unless there is a strong reason I would prefer the dts patch to go via
my tree. The reason is to avoid merge conflicts bubbling up to Linus,
which really is something best avoided.
