The normal development process is:

* commit new code to your repository
* that goes into -mm for public testing and review
* merge window opens
* the code that has seen public testing and review goes upstream

The general idea is everything you want in 2.6.22 should be prepared and 
in -mm BEFORE 2.6.21 is released, and the 2.6.22 merge window opens.

It's quite normal for fixes and minor changes to trickle in after the 
push that follows the merge window opening.  But new drivers that have 
not been through this process do not fall under "fixes and minor changes."

I also did not see any response to my "better as a single file driver" 
suggestion.

So, I'll pull if you remove the two late additions.

	Jeff
