Hi Greg,

You have already applied the rest two patches for this driver. This is
the only patch which is left.

But I think you might have problem applying this because there have
been changes in previous patches later i.e you applied v8 of this
series, while, maintainers later suggested to change more and hence v9
was also introduced.

Therefore, v9's patch 1 and v10 patch is correct to be applied in the tree.
