Isn't Intel the "vendor" here? If not, why not have them directly
interact with us, you do not want to be put into the middle, it only

Yes, that TODO list is quite large already, fix up all of those and then
ask for more review please. Reviewing code you know needs lots of work

So again, please fix all of that first, get those changes accepted, and
then we can talk :)
