This is a SPI driver change, and should either go through or be acked by that
maintainer. In this particular case, there's been several series of the
EXPERIMENTAL removals, and I think Kees Cook has one that removes it for all
options in one go. So please ack that patch instead.

This looks like a cleanup, so I have cherry-picked it into our cleanup branch.

Based on the above, no need to resend this, but please follow up on the
EXPERIMENTAL cleanup by Kees.

According to the current MAINTAINERS file, the drivers/spi/spi-pxa2xx*
driver is maintained by the PXA2xx/PXA3xx guys.
That is why I submitted this patch to the linux-arm-kernel list.
Is the MAINTAINERS file incorrect?

Regards,
Paul

The file is correct, but it's not always easy to understand. drivers/spi
overall is maintained by Grant, which arch/arm/mach-* is maintained by
Olof and me. Haojian maintains the PXA components for each one, so the
formal way to do this is to have arch/arm/mach-pxa patches go

Author -> Haojian -> arm-soc -> Torvalds

while drivers/spi/spi-pxa* change go

Author -> Haojian -> Grant -> Torvalds

In some cases, you need extra knowledge that is not documented properly,
e.g. that Grant was on leave recently, and Mark Brown stepped in for
him, or that the arm-soc maintainership has not been documented at
all for some time (fixed now). In doubt, just add more people to Cc.
We're all good at ignoring email that doesn't seem to address us ;-)
