I think there was enough feedback on the CPU patches?  IIRC the main
issues were that the driver will need some way to tell that it's an
IISv4 block (which it would be able to do with the existing arch/arm but
not with the patches you sent) and that the audio-bus clock has to be
idmplemented so that the driver can probe (or the driver will need to be
able to carry on if it can't get the clock).

As a rule new features should be submitted against the newest branch for
a given subsystem - if there's an older branch it will normally be bug
fix only.

For new features, yes.  Bug fixes should be done against the version
destined for Linus' current tree if the issue applies there.
