Hi Joel,

Yes, I think we should merge the parts that are reviewed already, but I'd
leave out the clk (4/16) and reset (9/16) patches in this case.

Krzysztof has reviewed the binding changes, so I don't mind having
the DT nodes added in the soc tree even if the two drivers are still

I would do the same thing for the sunplus SP7021 platform that
Qin Jian has been posting, as this is also waiting for a final Ack
on the clk driver.

I would put both of the new platforms into a single branch in the
SoC tree, separate from the usual dt/drivers/soc/defconfig
branches. I was already planning to pick npcm8xx up myself,
but if you can do a pull request, that would be even better.
