Can you take maintainership of this driver? Since you already maintain most of
the ep93xx core stuff I think that you are the right person for the job. If
you need any assistance I believe me and Ryan can help you out.

We have now few patches queued:
	- this series from me to fix the DMA API violations
	- phylib patches from Florian Fainelli

It would be great to get those in someday :-)
