Hi Lee,

Can we have your ack for this going via LED tree, please?

Patch looks okay.

You can take it through the LED, but if you do I will need you to send
me a pull-request to a minimised immutable branch please.

If you cannot do this, I can apply the set and provide the same to

If you choose the former:

Acked-for-MFD-by: Lee Jones <lee.jones@xxxxxxxxxx>

Please let me know what you decide

I've been exposing integration branches in the past, but after Linus'
message [0] I have my doubts now. I wonder if it wouldn't make more
sense if I just took the patches, and you'd cherry-pick them only in
case such a need occurs. This way we would avoid this whole merge
noise, which in an optimistic and very plausible case will not be needed
at all.


That email is 2 years old, and does not seem relevant to what we're
trying to achieve. I've only ever had issues when *not* creating
immutable branches for these, cross subsystem scenarios. The
shared branches I create are always minimalist and never change.

I'm happy to take the patches and create a suitable pull-request for
you if you are uncomfortable with the process. I just need your Ack
to do so. Up to you.

I don't have any problem with the process. The clear gain of cherry
picking is more linear history. And the branch can be always created
when such a need occurs in linux-next.

That being said, I will send you a pull request once we sort out
the problem with obtaining a reference to the backlight node.

Best regards,
Jacek Anaszewski
