Very nice! Now after having completely missing something fundamental on
my reviews, I feel compelled to bring it up at the 11^H^H12th hour.

That is, this is the *only* BCM281xx driver to be named Capri, both in
the filename and driver code, but also in the binding compatible. We
didn't do that on anything else that's gone upstream to date. This
really introduces an unfortunate inconsistency as it obscures which
SoC family this binding and driver belong with.

I wonder if Linus would accept a rename at this point (too late for 3.14
presumably, but for 3.15) of s/capri/bcm281xx throughout, bcm11351 for
the compatible string, as we have for the machine compatible, and also
BCM281XX for the Kconfig option. If not, I'll survive, but it pains me
to see one thing completely different out of this entire family. If
nothing else, it would be great to address the compatible string before
this hits the 3.14 release.
