No, I'm busy, that's all.

That said, the current situation is

a) we need someone to have a look at the performance regression of the
MMC file system layer that you reported. I couldn't find a PXA-based
board yet with a MMC slot soldered on it. But as you apparently have
such hardware, I'd really appreciate your help here. Could you do some
measurements and see whether you see major differences in packet size or

b) Marek Vasut thankfully reported back to me and signaled success with
his pxa-pata driver. So we're most probably good in that area.

c) Robert Jarzmik is still in the process of converting the camera
driver. Here as well, I lack hardware, I can't even compile-test
anything here.

So please, if you have any spare time, have a look at the MMC
regressions and see if you can contribute anything. I'll hope to find
some time to rebase my patches on top of 3.13 very soon, so we have a
new base to work on.
