I missed the rest of this discussion, but if your conerns are about
bisection, it's not an issue in this case. Board patches that add i2c or
platform device data with no unmet dependencies I usually merge early.
The main rationale for this is that the driver often shows up quite a bit
later, and the board code will likely have had more paches piled up on
top of it and merge conflicts ensue.

For patches that depend on headers and definitions added by the driver
patch, we either apply them together, or I just hold off on the board
patch until the driver is upstream. patchwork helps keep track of the
ones that are still pending at least. These sorts of ordering issues
happen a lot, but are generally always resolved by rc2.
