No, it does not solve it.
1. Patchset goes via separate trees (DTS are always separate), so it is
not bisectable. One of the branches/trees will have broken DTS.

2. All out of tree DTSes are broken. This is expressed as ABI and - with
some reasonable exceptions - you should not break it.
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v5.19-rc1/source/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/ABI.rst

You have to keep backwards compatibility, so parse/handle both versions
of DTS.


Best regards,
Krzysztof
