Was this a backlight driver? I've just noticed all the backlight
maintainers on Cc: but the subject doesn't make this obvious and even
with you quoting the patch header I still can't be entirely sure!

As a result I think its very likely the patch simply got overlooked
because it didn't look much like a backlight driver when filtering
e-mail. Patches that can't be easily categorized from the subject
line will often get overlooked.

So, asssuming this was a backlight driver, could you resend the patch
with an updated description and a subject line commenting:
[PATCH] backlight: otm3225a:


Daniel.
