Nope, in fact, I don't want to see any new code added here for this
subsystem that isn't "correct". Just because the code is in staging
doesn't mean you get to add stuff that doesn't follow the rest of the
kernel's normal rules.

I want to see the existing code fixed up and moved _out_ of staging
first, before adding a bunch of new stuff here. Please don't just add
to the TODO list, like you are doing with this series, that's not ok.
