It however does not make sense if one wants to research when and why
something was changed. We do not split patches to .h files from .c

Whenever I can I merge the driver and dt binding changes together if
they have been posted and reviewed as separate patches. The
Acks/Reviewed are mostly important for maintainers anyway.
