I guess the dependent tree was being pulled into linux-next before
the pinctrl tree, and so the end result was working?

Yeah maybe I missed some pull request for that, such things happen.

See above.

Anyway, it is a minor platform, not x86_64. So don't exaggerate
this thing, and besides the restart notifiers are great.

If we go down the route of trying to always avoid all trouble in the
world by adding more procedure I guess we shouldn't shoehorn
too much into the same merge window and should have this
postponed to v3.19. But I don't know if it buys us so much.
