Oh I know and I also know that the rule was always somewhat flexible
for "new" drivers ;-) But heh, it's not biggie.

Sort-of, it does make things difficult to have so much crap piling up
out of tree or in vendor trees as you well know, so the faster that
pile is sorted, the better everybody is. But I can deal with the
dependencies for 4.19 (assuming we get the 2 or 3 other drivers I want
to see upstream lined up as well in the next few weeks).

Cheers,
