Florian, thanks for queueing the Broadcom specific patches!

So yes, I would be very grateful if subsystem maintainers take this at
their discretion.
For once, I didn't actually change anything in the binding, so most
things were already slightly wrong according to the .txt binding, just
nobody realised or cared. So those .dts files changes are actually
independent and justified even without patch 01/10.

Secondly, there are already so many warnings in many .dts files at the
moment, that (in the worst case) a few more - for a brief period of time
- do not really matter. But at the end it will improve the situation.

Rob, if you are fine with the actual binding, I would try to pursue the
remaining subsystem maintainers to get the .dts changes merged.
