They were marked "accepted" in patchwork but must have fallen through
the cracks.  I reset them to "new" and assigned to Lorenzo.

Neither one follows the subject line capitalization conventions.

The subject line of this patch (1/2) doesn't really make sense.  I
*think* this adds a property ("vph-supply") to indicate which
regulator supplys power to the PHY.

This commit log doesn't describe the patch, either.  Maybe something
like this:

  dt-bindings: imx6q-pcie: Add "vph-supply" for PHY supply voltage

  The i.MX8MQ PCIe PHY can use either a 1.8V or a 3.3V power supply.
  Add a "vph-supply" property to indicate which regulator supplies
  power for the PHY.

Just going by examples for other drivers, I think this should say
something like this:

  - vph-supply: Regulator for i.MX8MQ PCIe PHY.  May supply either
    1.8V or 3.3V.

You mentioned "one of the three PCIe PHY powers"; I don't know what
that means, so I don't know whether it's important to include.

I also don't know what "vph" means; if the "ph" is part of "phy", it'd
be nicer to include the "y", so it would be "vphy-supply".
