While the maintainers like code to be as clean as possible, there is 
also the "if it isn't broke, don't fix it" mantra. This is especially 
true for older drivers that are in pure maintenance mode.

So unless you can show you are fixing a problem and you can actually 
test your patches (or recruit someone to do so), any patches to ath10k, 
especially to SDIO, won't be accepted.

Your team is doing some nice work, but I suggest you focus on drivers 
that are under active development, and preferably ones where you 
actually have the hardware to test.
