Why are people working on "new functionality" instead of working on
getting this out of the staging tree?  I really hate adding new
functions to staging drivers, as this is not the correct place for
drivers to be in the tree.  People should be working to get them out of
this location, and then you can add new functions to them.

So I really don't want to take this series, sorry, someone better start
working on getting this out of drivers/staging/ or I'm going to have to
drop the driver entirely from the tree.

thanks,

greg k-h
