It comes more from having developed these things quite independently and only collected for submission...

One patch I don't know how to handle: "MIPS: DTS: CI20: add DT node for IR sensor".
It is from 2015 and has a different author (some Alex Smith but the mail address seems to be broken).
This information and attribution will be lost if we squash them.

But I can do for V3 and will also fix the fixes tags by adding cc: stable :)

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus
