OK patch applied.

Maybe we should move the ACPI specs into the kernel
as well as that stuff is taking my time as well now, apart
from DT :/

Wasn't the plan to move the DT bindings out of the kernel tree instead?

That never seems to happen. Who would dare to try even.

The effect of doing that would probably not be desireable: the
kernel maintainers would maybe stop caring about DT bindings
and not providing any help at all, and noone would be able to
sensibly enforce that drivers and bindings go hand-in-hand.

I would think it was a good idea if there was an entity
outside the kernel community with the right manpower and
time budget to actually just do DT reviews, participating on
bindings and kernel driver reviews alike. But that needs to
come first, then *maybe* this entity can maintain their
own tree, with a copy in the kernel for a trial period and
then move it out.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
