The thing is, this driver has been submitted 4 days ago, merged by
you 3 days ago and sent upstream two days ago. It has two build
breakages so far, the first one of which triggered on a pretty
common config too.

If you have time for such speedy integration but then dont have time
to test on common configs and dont have time to follow up on and
fix/merge the (pretty much inevitable) upstream breakages you
introduce and get the fixes to Linus, sending prompt fixes next-day
preferably, out of your usual schedule, it would be a better
solution for you to submit new drivers to the staging tree i think -
which does have the capacity to fix and merge such stuff.
