The 'i' part was me fooling around in vi.
After submitting this serie I read the proper subject would be:
(from bindings/submitting-patches.txt)

dt-bindings: rtc: <short description>

I will use this in next submission so it is clear this is rtc related.

We had is implmented like this (using pF) in the beginning but
then went for the simpler property.
Will add a fF property as you suggest and avoid breaking the existing drivers.
We will check a few of the boards to see if the current configuration
of the pcf8523 driver looks wrong, and if so we will print
the warnings as suggested.

I think the above covers feedback on all patches.
And thanks for the feedback!

Sam
