Note that it is the same kernel :) Typically we would say "to the Rust
side" or similar.

I think you mean the archived `rust` branch (it is useful to point
this out -- Rust for Linux is not just that branch).

However, has the `Bit` type (assuming you mean that) been submitted? I
don't recall seeing it, and normally something like that would not go
through `net-next`. If it has been, could you please send the Lore

Assuming the patch was not sent, I would suggest replacing this commit
with the dependency you want to use, e.g. the `Bit` type, since it is
a small enough one.

In addition, this series has v2 in the title -- I think you did that
because this patch was already submitted, but this is not really a v2
of that series since this is mainly about the driver (and anyway this
patch in particular is not meant to be merged; plus you didn't change
it from what I can see).
