You are mixing changes on 3 subsystem in a single patch series. It
makes the merge process unnecessarily hard. I suggest you split the
series as following:

- nbus dt-bindings and driver
- watchdog dt-bindings and driver
- ts-4600 board bindings and dts

You should get the first two into mainline through corresponding
subsystem tree, and then submit the last one to me. In that case, NBUS
and watchdog dts changes do not have to be separate patches.
