Excellent. Please submit your patch for merging "upstream" once you think
it's ready; also you might want to send your patches here for review even
before. It will be based on soc_common, right?

Well, that's basically it. Taking a look at clean other soc_common-based
socket drivers is probably the best thing to do; also "git log" on these
files may contain helpful information. And if you have any questions, just
ask rmk, me and/or this list.
