The series look good. I suggest posting the KCS bindings and driver
changes as their own series to go through the IPMI tree.

Please add my tag to all the patches except the OCC one, which I need
to do some investigation in to.

The others can go via the aspeed tree. Perhaps post them as their own
series too so I don't get confused and apply the wrong ones. That way
if Rob wants to send his reviewed-by he can.
