It's not so much a matter of "fixup for this time", it's a about
having ownership of the driver, making sure it works (and keeps
working if there is related development). The posted patches have not
been followed through on and the result is a broken driver. :(

I definitely appreciate his expertise, and we should make sure that he
gets to review the code, but if someone else is able to spend time on
reworking the driver (or rewriting a newer one) and maintaining it
longer-term, then we should not stop them from doing so. And there is
no reason to keep broken stale code in the kernel meanwhile.
