Why do you bump to a -rc version rather than a final stable version?

Also, you only remove the existing U-Boot patch in PATCH 2/4. Which
means if I apply only PATCH 1/4, the build is broken.

Patch series should be bisectable: applying PATCH 1/4 only should work,
applying PATCH 1/4 and 2/4 only should work, applying PATCH 1/4, 2/4
and 3/4 only should work.

Could you rework your series with this in mind?

Thanks a lot!
