That's ducking the question. Let me rephrase.

Why was a complete lack of response judged to be an ACK?

For new drivers, that's a -horrible- precedent. You are quite skilled
at poking random hackers :) why not poke somebody to ack a new drivers?
It's not like this driver (or many of the other new drivers)
desperately need to get into the kernel ASAP, so desperate that a lack
of review was OK.
