    I poked you on January 14 about whether or not we can push ath3k into
    the 2.6.33 series since it was merged as part of linux-next [1]. I didn't
    get a reply to that so I figured I'd try this instead.

    Yeah that first set of patches sucked ass, even the later ones due to the
    space crap, I agree completely, our bluetooth team needed to get familiarzed
    with the upstream patch process and requirements.

    Well like I said I poked you about it on January, and got no reply. So yes.
    I see no point to penalize users for not merging a driver into the 2.6.33
    series if its already in linux-next, its so small, and the point of issue
    was the original submission from a team completely new to the process.

    So you justify not merging the driver into 2.6.33 because the team submitting
    it did a terrible job on their first try submitting upstream?

    I'll clarify I am not trying to overstep on anyone, but if I get no replies
    I will try to push through alternate routes.
