It should only affect additional features being enabled. When the .dts
changes get merged the new features just starts working. Or if the .dts
changes go in first, the driver starts working when the driver changes
go in.

If there's some dependency between the driver and the .dts changes
breaking booting etc, that should be fixed in the patches by
for example removing old legacy code later on in a separate series.

This allows us to break the dependency between arch/arm code and
drivers in most cases to keep things simpler.
