Thanks for the patch:
Reviewed-by: Paul Burton <paul.burton@xxxxxxxxxx>
I've CC'd Ralf & Andrew since a couple of other patches to this driver have
been waiting for someone to merge them for a while, and whilst it's unclear
which path those patches & this one should take into mainline they've been
suggested so far (besides Miguel who seems not to be active).
I've also CC'd the trivial patch monkey in case this can get in through that
route, though I'm unsure whether CC'ing on a reply is sufficient so you might
like to resend with trivial@xxxxxxxxxx CC'd on the patch.
