Thanks for giving it a go. The second patch in this series should apply as-is:
[PATCH v2 1/3] iommu/ipmmu-vmsa: Add r8a7796 DT binding

However for driver code there are two series in between:
[PATCH v6 00/07] iommu/ipmmu-vmsa: IPMMU multi-arch update V6
[PATCH v2 00/11] iommu/ipmmu-vmsa: r8a7795 support V2

For more detailed dependency information please see the cover letter!

Regarding the driver code please wait for "IPMMU multi-arch update V7"
that takes comments from Laurent into consideration. Hopefully I
should be able to send it out some time this week.

As for "[PATCH v2 1/3] iommu/ipmmu-vmsa: Add r8a7796 DT binding",
would it be possible to fast track mainline merge of that particular
DT binding patch? Can you take it in your tree?

To give some background, we already have the IPMMU DT binding for
older devices and the sister device r8a7795 in mainline, so the
r8a7796 DT binding is just a small incremental step. To make sure we
don't go too wild with DT changes we tend to require that the DT
binding change should be queued up before starting to merge changes to
DTS files. So currently some DT changes are blocking on that r8a7796
DT binding and it would be nice to unblock those if possible..
