Yes, please hold off a bit on this, I've actually been working on this
driver with Scott and Naren (cc'd) for several months now (which is
part of why it doesn't look so much like a lot of typical vendor code
;), and was planning to handle the submission on Naren and Broadcom's
behalf. Just didn't expect someone else to hop on it this quickly. Was
planning to get a git tree up on git.kernel.org over the weekend for
both the driver and the lib, start prepping patches for review, etc.,
but family time and home improvement projects have taken precedence
the past few days (not to mention a few other driver projects that
sucked up time earlier in the break, *cough* IR).
