In the meantime, can you rebase the tree once more to split out the
driver patches and make sure the architecture port without the drivers
still builds cleanly (at least defconfig and allmodconfig) using the compiler
from [1]? If this requires additional patches, please add them on top.

Once that is done, we can ask Linus to consider merging the branch
for the architecture port, while you keep working with the pci and irqchip
maintainers to merge the drivers either for 5.19 or a future release.

While this means merging a branch that does not actually work on any
hardware by itself, it should be sufficient for the libc patches to
consider the ABI stable, and it is consistent with how we keep
CPU architecture support separate from platform driver support
