I think Olof would prefer the last patches to go through arm-soc.

That would be preferred but merging them before the 5/8 would cause a
loss of functionality on these defconfigs making it non-bisectable

Exactly, that's why I suggested merging all through RTC with proper acks.

approach. I think it would be good to preserve bisectability in that
matter so either:
1. a tag from RTC on top of which these patches would be applied in arm-soc,

I didn't suggest that option because I thought it would be a lot of burden
for such a trivial change.

2. take them to RTC tree with our acks.

Or another option is to not pick the defconfig changes and I can repost
those again once the RTC changes land into mainline.

But of course if up to you to decide since I'm not a maintainer :)
