Thank you for the reply and for stepping up as maintainer.

I tend to merge updates to the MAINTAINERS file as bugfixes the file contains
the correct addresses at all times. If you sent an update for this to,
I'll get that merged.

Since I think this is an x86 platform, you can alternatively send the same patch
to the x86 maintainers.

Are you also planning to maintain or add drivers for some of the older SoC
generations from Ti/Lantiq/Infineon/Intel that are now owned by MaxLinear?
It would be good to be explicit about which ones of these you are working
with. From what I can tell, the arch/mips/lantiq/ platform is only for fairly
old designs (xrx200 and older), while support for the slightly later mips
and x86 based chips was submitted a few years ago but never merged.

From my side, only an Ack on the original bugfix I sent [1] is needed, but
Pavel had other concerns about the driver. I expect he will follow up on those
with you.
