I remember that Vince point out the absence. He asked about how to implement it and i wasn't sure about it. At this time we hadn't IRQ polarity support. So we wanted to get this puzzle piece before. In march i put it on my TODO list, but then RPI 3 B+ support had higher prio to get into 4.18.

In general we have the problem that most of the users take the downstream kernel and don't know about the differences. Luckily more distributions switch to the upstream kernel, which increases the feedback.
