It's fine to say "don't apply, for _THIS REASON_".  You didn't specify a
reason, which is why I complained.

Ah, fun, we will diverge even more in the future, not good.  Any reason
why I shouldn't just delete this whole in-kernel tree if you are going
to spend time maintaining a different version?

If you want to maintain this driver, in the kernel tree, by all means I
would love the help as I don't have hardware or the ability to test
anything.  Having two different trees for the source guarantees that
there are going to be constant problems here, and that's not good for
