Depends on on what you would like to spend your time: collecting Acks for all
pieces in treewide patch or send new API first followed up by per driver /
module update in next cycle.

I also have no strong preference.
And I think it's good to add Heikki Krogerus to Cc list for both patch series,
since he is the author of sysfs variant and may have something to comment on
the rest.
