Yes, it should go in for 3.1.
I wasn't really expecting John to pick it up. You are the maintainer of
drivers/bcma, so I'd expect to send it to *you*. Many maintainers would
be unhappy at patches being sent upstream and bypassing them. Normally
I'd expect you to pick up the patch and add it to your tree/queue with
your own signed-off-by, and for it to go upstream that way.
Of course, I'm happy to send it on directly if that's what you prefer.
