I did the original quick and dirty version for bringup. Rebecca took
over and (re)wrote the bulk of the driver, getting things stable for
production ship of Dream and Sapphire, and Dima is currently adding
support for later Qualcomm chipsets (QSD8x50, etc). Looping them into
this discussion.

It would probably be worth referring to drivers like this as "for
Qualcomm MSM/QSD SoCs" or the like, since they do work with a lot of
hardware beyond just Dream.
