I can help with both the Designware and Tegra host bridge drivers.
But that requires:
1. CCing patches to me, so I know what is going on
2. Providing good descriptions on what is done in the patchset and how

With all the MSI changes by various people going on in parallel it's
hard to follow for someone not looking at this stuff every day.
