This series was even longer before, with patches all around for various
maintainers. I'd expect that relevant maintainers pick the range of patches
meant for them. I don't know who's exactly responsible for what, but I think,
this should work:
- 2 stmmac patches should go together via some networking tree (is there
something specific for stmmac?)
- all DTS patches should go via sunxi
- hdmi patches via some drm tree
thank you and regards,
