Hi, Petr,

I just pulled from master and I don't see any updates for sky2.c.

What would be the next step for getting the fix into the kernel? I have 
never written a patch for the kernel before and I really don't know if 
it would break anything else or disrupt any future work.

Should I write a patch or should I let you do it? And if I do, should I 
just change IS_ERR for IS_ERR_OR_NULL for all the drivers on your 
original patch or just for the sky2?

I will be glad to help.
