It is wrong. The driver should not depend on DTS changes because:
1. DTS always go through separate branch and tree, so last patch
will have to wait up to 3 cycles (!!!),
2. You break backward compatibility.

In certain cases dependency on DTS changes is ok:
1. Cleaning up deprecated properties,
2. Ignoring the backward compatibility for e.g. new platforms.

None of these are applicable here.

You need to rework it, put DTS changes at the end. This clearly shows
that there is no wrong dependency.

I cannot find exynos,parent-bus in exynos4412-odroid-common.dtsi. Can
you elaborate?

Best regards,
