Well, definitely yes.

The driver isn't 100% finished, but it mostly works.  One significant downside 
is the kernel version i had to port it to: 4.19.  IIRC there is API change so my 
current patches can't be applied to 5.x kernels.  Also, i could not finish the 
upstreaming as the customer device i worked on had to be returned.

However, given access to Altera TSE capable device (which i don't have atm), 
running a recent kernel, i'll gladly finish the upstreaming.
