Previous attempts of getting an answer from the qlogic.com group alias,
i.e., QLogic-Storage-Upstream@qlogic.com, have remained unanswered; see
links below.

Mark those sections Orphan to prepare their deletion or give an actual
person a chance to step up to maintain those drivers.

applies cleanly on current master and next-20200828

James, Martin, please pick this minor non-urgent patch.

Anil, Sudarsana, if these drivers are still maintained by qlogic, please
provide actual names of people that maintain these drivers.

CC'd Arun,

I think it's worth to update the alias to:

GR-QLogic-Storage-Upstream@marvell.com

Again, no, please remove aliases and use real names and email addresses,
otherwise accountability is lost over time, as we have seen constantly.

So, if these drivers are not orphans, you can answer Thomas Gleixner's 
original email from 2019. If you can quickly ack that patch set, I am 
happy to do the donkey work to get this apply nicely on the current 
master (please CC me on that response).

I have to wonder what the object is here: to get the problem fixed or
to make a public spectacle?

Because if the object had been to get the issue fixed, waiting a year
before escalating to the SCSI list isn't the best way to achieve
outcomes, nor is now demanding that the drivers be orphaned for lack of
response to you ... particularly as you've seen the drivers updated
over that time if you actually follow kernel releases.

Qlogic or now Marvell tends to rely somewhat heavily on outsourcing for
driver maintenance and support.  Outsourcers, fairly obviously, aren't
going to respond to legal issues like this which are outside of their
remit.  What needs to happen is that someone needs to find a person
within the Qlogic org who can get this fixed ... possibly involving
explaining the actual issue along the way.  Would you like us to use
our contacts to do that?

James

Let us get the problem fixed; no spectacle here.

I just followed Greg KH's advice; spdx licensing clean-up is not the top 
most priority thing; so it just happened to be laying around for a year.
Feel free to ignore this patch and we solve the problem instead.

Yes, I (and I will bet the licensing clean-up janitors) welcome if that 
legal question can be resolved and the kernel can be cleaned up from 
unneeded files.

OK, that's the plan then.

OK, because of the high turn over at the Qlogic division due to the
takeover, this will take us some time, but we'll try to find the right
people at least to explain the issue to.

This is the first I hear of this since the patches weren't CC:ed to
linux-scsi. And not all of these changes pertain to storage drivers but
to networking so I am also not sure that mails sent to the above Storage

But we'll get this fixed up. Reaching out to our contacts at Marvell.

Just to keep this thread updated, we are checking with the legal before 
ack-ing the change on spdx. Nilesh has already updated Thomas G. about 
this on the orignal spdx thread.
