I think for fbdev stuff that we need for the fbdev emulation in drm we
could merge it through drm-misc. And I'd very much welcome if you can
still review those patches (e.g. the nommu enabling that's floating right
now). If you want can also give you commit rights to drm-misc for that
area. Or drm-misc maintainers can apply those patches.
Anything else would be still out of scope ofc.
What we might want to do is add dri-devel to the mailing lists, to make
sure patch submissions get redicted to the right subsystem. Mail volume
seems pretty low compared to dri-devel, I think we can absorb that.
