But if the DT entries are missing, the driver won't load, would it?

The reason is because there's a separate DT tree and all those arm
drivers need DT.

I have already acked EDAC patches to go through other trees too, FWIW.
Which is not optimal either if someone sends fixes ontop but I cannot
apply them yet because the dependent patches are in a different tree.

So yes, there are at least two good reasons for merging a shared branch.
