If we can reach an agreement about what should be done for the driver
to be promoted from staging some day, I'll merge it. Otherwise,
it can be kept maintained out of tree. This driver has been maintained
OOT for a very long time, and it seems that people were happy with
that, as only at the second half of this year someone is requesting
to merge it.

So, while I agree that the best is to merge it upstream and
address the issues that made it OOT for a long time, we shouldn't
rush it with the risk of doing more harm than good.

Thanks,
Mauro
