    I have lobbied for one of our partners to conduct this work, but I don't
    think this would be something that is in their interest to fix.
    Nevertheless, I am currently waiting on a reply from them.

    FAO GregKH,

    Do you think this would be something that may interest you and your Linux

    play with some platform driver code.
