Hi Jakub,
Of course I know about the "too-big-series-to-review" rule. That's why I've
split all my work up into three patchsets. Actually this one is the very
first patchset, which I've submitted over two months ago but noone except
Rob gave me any review comment. So I've decided to post all the work,
to so called depict a scale of the work, which needs to be reviewed.

Anyway I thought it would be obvious from the cover-letters which patchsets
should be applied first, which next. This one states that it's a very
first series. The rest of the patchsets contains a link to the
previous one they were supposed to be applied to. Perhaps I should have
stated that in a clearer way.

Regarding having over 15 patches in this series. Normally it's not that
strict rule. There are even bigger series can be found submitted,
reviewed and accepted in the kernel. Of course sometimes it's hard to
review even 15 patches due to complexity of the changes. But most of
the alterations posted here are trivial and shouldn't be difficult to
review. That's why I felt free to post it as is.

Of course I agree with you. It would be too much to review over 60
patches at once. Let's review one series at a time then. This one is
the very first one. Please start with it.

Regarding splitting this series up. Well, normally there is no such
requirement to split the fixes and feature into different series.
(Though I am not surprised to get such request from net-subsystem. You
always prefer to do things in your special way. ^_^) So in this series
the fixes have been structured together and have been submitted first
in the order, but after DT-bindings related patches. Anyway if you
want it, I'll split the patchset up into two. The first one will be
targeted to "net" and will have all the fixes. The second one will
contain the bindings-related modifications and the clocks-related feature
implementation. It will be sent to net-next. I'll do that in v2. But
at the current stage could you start reviewing this series the way
it is? I'll take into account your comments and add your tags in the
split v2 patchsets if any.
