Yeah, sorry about the bulky series. If most of the changes have been more
complicated than that, less inter-dependent and less directed to having the code
prepared for the main alterations I would have definitely split them up in
different series. But the biggest part of the patchset is just a preparation
before adding the mem-ops, poll-based transfers and Baikal-T1 SPI support. So
having them submitted without the main part of the patchset would be just weird.

The other 10+ patches were sent months ago. I've just resent them with minor
alterations to get more attention.) Anyway since they concern an absolutely
different functionality (DW APB SSI DMA driver) of course I've delivered them in
the framework of the different patchset.

I see you have already merged in the first nine patches. So would you like me
to split the rest of them up into two series or it would be ok to resend (if
required) them as one series seeing it's not that bulky anymore?
