Subject: Re: [PATCH v4 00/15] Switchtec NTB Support

Hey Jon,

Any update on this? The merge window is likely very soon and it would be 
good to know where we stand. As far as I know I've addressed all the 
feedback I've been given. Let me know if there's anything I can do to 
further this process.

Thanks,

Logan
