Hi Greg,

Replying here simply because I am not subscribed to the stable-commits
mailing list and there does not appear to be an easy way to reply to one
of those emails through the existing archives because they are not as
nice as lore.kernel.org.

This patch is fine for the current releases in review but 4.4, 4.9, and
4.14 need to have the patch applied to scripts/dtc/dtc-lexer.lex.c_shipped
because prior to commit e039139be8c2 ("scripts/dtc: generate lexer and
parser during build instead of shipping"), that was the file that was
being built. Running the command below in the stable-queue repo works
for me and I have tested all of the patches to make sure they still
apply (albeit with some fuzz).

$ sed -i 's;scripts/dtc/dtc-lexer.l;scripts/dtc/dtc-lexer.lex.c_shipped;g' \
queue-{4.4,4.9,4.14}/scripts-dtc-remove-redundant-yyloc-global-declaration.patch

If you would prefer a set of patches, let me know.

Cheers,
Nathan
