Partly because Eric and Stefan have publically annouced all over the
who knows where that they don't want this in staging.  They say it
needs to go to the general tree.  So I'm not 100% sure a V2 makes sense
when people aren't even agreeing if this is the correct place for this 
to be.

I did not write the driver myself, I've simply been burdened myself
that VC4 doesn't really work that good on the RPI 3 so I was hoping it
would unblock people after finding it on the web.

If people want a V2, then they are going to have to be very specific
about what needs to change and exactly how it to change. Not just say
they don't like it.

If it's suddenly so important, why can't someone else add in their
corrections after my Signed-off-by: and add their own Signed-off-by:. 
Or better yet submit the original driver themselves.
