I applied the v4 patch set so we get some rotation in linux-next before
the merge window.

If reviewers still find smallish issues they can certainly be fixed in follow-up
patches.

Did you use the userspace chardev for some interesting experiments
with your set-ups?

I tend to think of your applications as pretty interesting for industry
peers, and a good proof-of-concept for the userspace API.

Oh!

Yeah that makes all kind of sense. We are living with the legacy
of the first PCs every day when it comes own to EISA & friends...
