It's a compromise actually.

It's a bit of struggle and tough sometimes since I care both
about the kernel and the autonomy of the DT bindings

We are in a transition phase to YAML bindings, and what is important
for me as maintainer is to have developer buy-in, and
it is more motivating for developers to work on this in-tree
than having patches held back. I personally know how
important it is to feel that things move forward in

Now it should be a separate task on top of what we have,
which is less stressful and gives the feeling of a bit of

When the new generic YAML bindings are proven to work
