Patch 21 is the framer infrastructure.
Patches 22-25 are the driver for the PEF2256 framer.
Note that patch 24 is the pinmux part of the framer and, IHMO, can be
taken too.
Patch 23 need to be fixed (kernel test robot). The fix will be quite
minor (depends on HAS_IOMEM on the Kconfig file).

For the SoC part (QUICC ENGINE QMC and TSA), what will be the plan ? 
Qiang, Li, any opinion ?

I plan to send the v10 with the patch 23 fixed.
Based on that v10, some patches (21 to 25 at least) could be applied and
I will remove them for the future v11.
I think it will be easier to follow if I iterate on the series removing
patches as soon as they are applied.

Of course, please, let me know if this is not the right way to do.

Best regards,
