does it mean this series should go through your tree instead of Greg's?

Actual there are two of them.

First one are incompatibilities of older VC4 firmware with commit 14dd37fc7b65 ("staging: vc04_services: Remove cache-line-size property (v3)"). There is a pull request for the Foundation kernel which hasn't been upstreamed yet [1].

The second is documented here [2].

[1] - https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/pull/2666
[2] - https://github.com/lategoodbye/rpi-zero/issues/23

Great, just of curiosity which config did you use?

No, this is the mailing list for all staging driver. It is reported by get_maintainers.pl
