Here's the complete patchset:

http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-omap@vger.kernel.org/msg39833.html

If you prefer, I can resubmit.

Yes, all comments were addressed in this v3 iteration, and this thread
has been idle for about 10 days.

We started out with an omap-specific driver, but Tony preferred that we
make this a platform-agnostic framework, in order to keep the IPC drivers that
will use it generic, and assuming that more users will show up for
such framework.

To me it sounds reasonable, but both ways (framework / omap-specific
driver) will work for us just fine, and I can switch back to a misc
driver if this is preferred.

The complete discussion of v1 is at:

We also discussed this at v2 of the patches with David, see the
complete discussion at:

Thanks,
Ohad.
