Hello Irui,
we have some interest in this series; can you please rebase it over the latest
changes that were sent in series [1] [2]?

Also, please follow [2], where of_platform_populate was used in place of the
component framework (where applicable and where possible) on this series, as well.

Thanks!
- Angelo
