Ok, so, who should I bribe to get this merged?

The first version was posted on the 2/24, we're at v11 already, and I
only got a single mail from either one of you.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be ok to make any change you deemed necessary,
but in order to do so, I at least have to get a sign of life from you,
and so far, you've both always been MIA.

We're pretty much in the same situation for the other DMA driver
Emilio has been sending for over a month now, that he is doing as part
as a GSoC for the Linux Foundation, with not a single maintainer
review so far.

I'm getting quite tired of this honestly, and I'm not sure it sends
the right message to the hobbyists and companies that try to get
things right by contributing.
