SubjectRe: [PATCH v5 12/20] memory: mtk-smi: Add gals support
From
Date
Hi Matthias,

Gentle ping about this and the other mtk-smi part in this patchset.

The memory part don't have its specific maintainer, normally we need
SoC maintain's help. Thus, For this file(memory/mtk-smi.c), your review
is needed before Joerg accept it.

Appreciate in advance.
