Let's look at the history.

10-03-2015: This reminder
03-03-2015: Pull request (ignored from what can be seen)
01-03-2015: Request from Laurent about what's happening
27-02-2015: Reminder
23-02-2015: Re-base (and version 8) due to conflicts
11-02-2015: Reminder
22-01-2015: Pull request
23-12-2014: Version 7

During that time, there's not been one peep from Rob or Grant on this.
At what point has there been enough pestering that it's sufficient to
bypass an apparently uninterested maintainer, who can't be bothered to
say yes or no to a set of patches?

For such a key subsystem in the kernel, this is bad.  If Grant isn't
interested in performing a maintainer role, I'd be willing to pick up
that function (which'll be ironic, because that's the kind of thing
that Linaro's been doing to me over the last few years... picking
stuff off my plate without any discussion or agreement with me first,
leaving me with almost nothing to do.  No, I'm not pissed at that...
not much.)

I guess if you were to submit patches to Andrew, Andrew may take them
in this circumstance and eventually send them on to Linus.  Andrew?
