I am not the maintainer of stmmac :), I am just developing on it like everyone
else, just glad to help improving it and adding new features to it. Of course if
the current maintainers invite me to be, I will honored to do so.

Yes it would be fantastic to have a set of boards, but I rarely see this in any
maintainer :). I think it would be nice to have a farm like Linaro has with a
farm of boards donated by each company, enabling tests for everyone in the project.
I have talked with the Prototyping team and I will have an AXI based design,
which will emulate the SoC environment making possible to test the platform
driver scope.

I try as hard as I can to network with people and try to minimize this
situations, but when there is so many different setups using a driver with diff
configurations, situations like this can happen, but I am here to help debugging
and solving them.
