I assumed it's bump for whole target and reviewed as such, since the series name doesn't explicitly state it's for cortexa9. Anyway that's the point of KERNEL_TESTING_PATCHVER, to allow volunteers to test it and some could provide Tested-by tag (for example me) or point/submit a fix.

All the symbols I pointed to, move them to generic config with separate commit before mvebu kernel 5.10 config refresh.

So there's no point to add changes to Omnia dts (add hw buf management to Your other series, when kernel bump is merged), introduce them when You'll activate the features, in single series of patches. Also doing raw kernel bump will speed up the review/merge process.
