This is for a series that is currently in v7 and didn't get any feedback
at all yet. The history is:
v1: 2020-10-13, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20201013082132.661993-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
no feedback at all
v2: 2021-03-01, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210301110821.1445756-1-uwe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
kernel test robot identified some issues
v3: 2021-03-01, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210301135053.1462168-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I added a few driver patches to show the benefit. (However in a way
that the autobuilders don't understand, so there were some false
positive build failure reports.)
v4: 2021-03-30, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210330181755.204339-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Got some feedback for the converted drivers by the respective
maintainers. Some were indifferent, some found it good
v5: 2021-04-22, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210422065726.1646742-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Fixed a problem in one of the driver changes (i2c-imx), no feedback
apart from pointing out a few typos, silence from the clk
v6: 2021-04-26, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210426141730.2826832-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Just the typos fixed, no feedback
v6 resend: 2021-05-10, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210510061724.940447-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
no changes in code. Got some feedback from Jonathan Cameron
v7: 2021-05-10, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210510174142.986250-1-u.kleine-koenig@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Adress Jonathan's feedback, recieved some more acks from non-clk
pull request: 2021-07-09, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-clk/20210609202123.u5rmw7al4x3rrvun@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Technically there are two maintainers for drivers/clk, Michael Turquette
and Stephen Boyd. It seems Michael is MIA and Stephen doesn't have the
capacity to address all requests.

Assuming there was some process for this, is there someone who is
willing to take responsibility here?
