This is completely done wrong on so many levels.

I am not going to merge code from someone who doesn't have the basic
skills down when there's already a maintainer for the platform.
Luckily, you can deal with it -- be it coaching the ST employees on
how to work with the community the right way, or doing the work
yourself to send the code up. Probably a combination in this case.

Thanks, good to know that the series hasn't been fully reviewed. That
makes me even more hesitant to apply it at the moment, given all the
other issues around it.

Anyone touching the patch, forwarding it or applying it needs to sign
off. It's quite simple, and well documented.
