You aren't reading the patches :)

See my other response about that.

Please discuss these "serious design flaws". I have responded to all of
the ones that I have seen so far in this thread. And in all of the
other threads since this patch series was first posted months ago. I
would love to discuss the code, so please, let's do that.

It has been split into small patchsets, see the original postings.
And really, 13k lines of code is not all that big. We review driver
submissions larger than that all the time. Remember, your USB host
controller driver is bigger than that.

Please, review it, I would love for others to do so, and have been
asking for that since the beginning of this whole process months ago.
And I'd like to thank Andy and others for doing that. Based on their
review comments we have changed the api, redone the infrastructure, and
modified lots of different things. The code has massively changed for
the better because of this process. I'm not asking for it to stop, I'm
asking for it to be merged now as everyone seems to have not had any
more comments on the code anymore, other than Andy's specific comments,
and everyone else's vague rants.
I'm addressing Andy's comments, and I would love to address yours, if
you actually made any technical ones here.
