I think it seems a bit enthusiastic to have non-GPIO subsystems
pick up these changes this close to the merge window so my plan
is to merge patches 1.2.3 (1 already merged) and then you could
massage the other subsystems in v5.4-rc1.

But if other subsystems say "hey we want do fix this in like 3 days"
then I'm game for an immutable branch as well.
