Yeah hm, that sounds like it has "drivers/staging" printed all over it then,
so either we solve these issues or we need to put it into staging so we
can get help from others in fixing it up (we have a similar situation with
the U8500 graphics stuff).

P-G do you think it would be proper to take this into staging for the
moment, or do you prefer to drive it outside the mainline kernel tree until
it lands in the proper place(s)?
