Yeah I've read through that thread but the only conclusion I'd been
able to make was that you agreed on not introducing yet another line
discipline. I'm not sure if I could make a conclusion that Par gave up
on his attempt to make his patchset generic/extensible/reusable for
other chips of similar type. But if that's really the case, I see no
point in this patchset at all, as opposed to generalizing the TI
shared transport thingie and using that one.

Thanks,
Vitaly
