I am fine with both ways for this patch as it is only related to
Freescale register details. But in general I think patches should go
through functional subsystem, as they usually would need insight of
the subsystem architecture. I prefer the way that the patch acked or
signed-off by Freescale guys and push upstream through Dan's tree as
most other subsystems did. Unless Dan prefers to ack the subsystem
architectural part of each patch and have them pushed other way.
