I have your driver in a staging branch rather than the main 4.5 SCSI
queue because I wanted to see what kind of additional fallout I'd get
from the zeroday testing.

It's not a problem for me to wait for that patch to go in (or take it
through SCSI if that makes things easier).

The issue is the I don't know if Rob will approve the requested patch.

As an alternative I can make my driver not depend on it. So I could make a v6 patchset or just send a supplementary patch on top of v5 patchset.
