Your solution looks good. I had the MACH_UX500_DT option above U5500
instead of below it in our for-next branch, but either way makes sense.

Yes, noted for next time. We had a lot of merge conflicts because of
being relatively late in the merge window (this one was purely
self made though), and it's not always easy to decide which ones
to eliminate in advance, leave in or describe the resolution we found.

Since we usually see the same conflicts and resolve them in the
for-next branch, I guess it's easy enough to just always provide
the branch with the resolutions as a help for cases like this one.
