I was not aware that the patch was applied already that is why I send out
a v2. I normally do not follow any subsystem or linux-next tree to see if a
patch of me got applied or not. Normally I get an Acked-by: or Signed-off-by:
reply to know about the state of the patch. In case of this patch I got a
separate main 'Applied "spi: imx: wait_for_completion_timeout(..) for
PIO transfers"
to the spi tree' which did not get any attention from me as it was
hidden due some
gmail filter-to-label rules. In the end I am happy that this patch got applied.
Thanks for that and sorry that I have stolen to much time.
