Hi sam,
So sorry for responding late.
As I have done a pre-review and talked with the author before sending
out the patches.
So, for this serial patches,

I am assuming you are talking about the kirin[1] drm driver not the
hibmc[2] one, right?
I really appreciate John's awesome work at kirin drm driver all the way.
Honestly, after my work change from mobile to server years ago, I am
always waiting for some guy who is stably working at kirin drm driver to
take the maintenance work.
John, surely is a such guy. Please add up a patch to update the
maintainer as John, if John agree so. Then John can push the patch set
to drm maintainer himself.
*Note* that the maintainer patch should break hisilicon drivers into
kirin and hibmc two parts, like bellow:

M: Xinliang Liu <>
F: drivers/gpu/drm/hisilicon/hibmc

M: John Stultz <>
F: drivers/gpu/drm/hisilicon/kirin

[1] drivers/gpu/drm/hisilicon/kirin # for kirin mobile display driver
[2] drivers/gpu/drm/hisilicon/hibmc # for server VGA driver
