My experience in with other subsystems is that the DTS changes which
enables de device are part of the series.
They are normally prefixed with "arm64: dts:" or "ARM: dts:" for 32 bit
SoCs. That also normally the way I detect patches which should through
my tree.

Anyway I'll try to remember submitters in the future to send DTS patches
for network devices as separate series. That makes my life a bit more
complicated as I afterwards have to find the related DTS series to the
driver you accepted, but I'll try.

Regards,
Matthias
