    Well, since the patch should not change the behaviour
    of the drivers, it probably doesn't matter to users
    either way. However, it touches a number of places,
    which can break patches that others are working on,
    so maybe you should get it upstream at a point that
    has the least impact to developer (possibly now).

    Doing it now at least makes it easier to test
    moving drivers to unlocked operation.
