I would even go further than that. We're in this situation because the
current maintainer didn't do his job properly.

I want to point out what gregkh once said about this matter:

I very much agree with Javier here. Krzysztof promptly responds to
patches and usually provides detailed feedback when things need changes.
It would be stupid not to accept him as an additional maintainer.
