Thank you Shafi for sticking around. I just fished your response to
"Re: [PATCH] ath10k: merge extended peer info data with existing peers info" .
out of my spam-bucket. Kalle, please look if your copy of the mail got
flagged/deleted as well. Judging from the reply in this thread, I think you
overlooked it as well?
After reading it, I think the previous post and the request to put the patch
on wait was unnecessary. As of now, it seems to me that the open questions
between us have been settled amically (so to speak). Kalle, do you have any
concerns or can you put this in the next round then?
