I was going to do that for the next set of patches, for .39. I will be
moving some of the drivers into the staging tree as well, as was
discussed. I figured it was better to move things slower, making merges
from other trees easier, than to do it in all one big jump.

I still have your original patch series here which is what I am working
off of, so don't worry, it's not forgotten :)
