SubjectRE: [PATCH v4 0/3] ACPI / EC: Fix EC event handling issues
Hi, Rafael

I'm now working on v5 of this series.
1. splits root causes in a more detailed way,
2. clarifies root causes in patch description with real bugs, and
3. is safer according to the known EC FW behaviors.
So you can discard v3/v4 from the patchwork site.
And I'll post v5 when everything is cleared to me.

Thanks and best regards
