-staging doesn't work for drm. And yes this patch needs to go in through
drm-misc I think (I don't want to be at Greg's mercy for merging cleanups,
same way we don't wait for driver maintainers if they don't merge the
patch in a timely fashion).

I'd say if no one is actually working on vbox cleanup (i.e. porting to
atomic) we'll throw it out next cycle again.
