I wonder if it would be possible to re-order the merge sequence so that
similar inter tree dependencies are less likely to cause -next build
failures in the future. I guess atm lots of driver trees can depend on
MFD (e.g. regulator, sound, rtc, backlight, led, watchdog, etc) so it
may be good to move it up the order.
