Well, I don't expect you to use the cleaned-up driver as-is: I had to
remove the wakelocks functionality as infrastructure is not in
mainline. (Plus, I do not have hardware to test your latest version).

Applying small patch on top of cleaned up driver should be better than
carrying whole driver itself, right?

[Alternatively... I can try to incorporate your change, but I'd need
your testing at that point.]
