I took a rough look at the entire series and only have a few
minor comments to one patch, otherwise it looks fine to me.

I would still prefer for Li Yang to merge the patches and
send the pull request to soc at kernel.org, but if this also
gets stalled because of lack of feedback and there are no
objections to the content, you can send a PR there yourself.
