I guess we missed the 3.7 merge here. That's no big deal, but I sent the
patch series on a regular basis, starting 07/17 (sent new versions on
07/31, 08/23, 09/05 and 09/20), addressed all the issues that were
raised, and never got any feedback from you, either positive or
negative. The patches affecting the MX28 device trees have already been
merged by Shawn Guo into its tree, so only the driver and the bindings
remain to be merged. So I'm kind of lost on what should I do here?

Is it because I have an obviously broken driver or you don't have enough
time, or you don't want to merge drivers for such type of low resolution
controllers, or any other reason?

Thanks for your answer,
