QUESTION: new arch/arm/mach-bcmring code submission

From: Leo (Hao) Chen

Our team in Broadcom plan to submit our code of a new ARM11 SoC support to
As we have no experience in doing this, I hope that we can get some more information regarding the code submission.

1. We have a whole lot of OS-less csp (chip support package) code that is used in our drivers and arch code. We will release them as GPL but we want to keep and maintain them in our own csp directories. Can we put them under arch/arm/mach-bcmring/csp and arch/arm/mach-bcmring/include/csp directories? If not, what's the proper way to do that?

2. We have driver header files which are currently kept in the include/linux/broadcom directory. Where is the proper place to put our driver header files in Linux kernel? Any guidelines?

3. Do I need to submit our code to any maintainer or just submit to LKML?

Thanks a lot,

Leo Hao Chen
