    Lots of code is "flawed but works". The place for such code is
    drivers/staging/ - it gets put in there so the code is available for
    those who need the driver and the code is later moved over into
    drivers/ once the flaws have been addressed.

    So a path forward here would be for us to put the driver and the
    sglist extensions into a directory under drivers/staging/.
