Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 00/17] net: introduce Qualcomm IPA driver (UPDATED)

I am happy to see this driver upstream.

Members of the bufferbloat project *care*, and have tools and testbeds for
exploring these issues. It would be good to establish a relationship with
the vendor, obtain hardware, and other (technical and financial) support, if

Is there any specific hardware now available (generally or in beta) that
can be obtained by us to take a harder look? A contact at linaro or QCA
willing discuss options?
