The general rule that we try to use is to always merge DT through the
arm-soc tree, even if the driver gets merged through the subsystem
tree. There should be no harm in doing this for new drivers (i.e. a
new driver won't regress if the DT update is missing, it just won't
probe/configure). And that way we can keep the conflicts internal to
our tree (ideally to the SoC maintainer tree) and not cause overhead
for other maintainers and Stephen.

So yes, for the future please do not submit the DT updates with the
drivers, or at the very least be very clear when you post them that
you don't want the driver maintainer to apply them.
