Hi Dmitry,

what is the status of this patch? Are we still waiting for Rob to
comment on the device properties or is this ready to land?

Little bit OT question: what tree/branch do you use to apply patches?
According to the mailing list you recently applied some patches but
I can not find them here [1].

Thank you,
Michal
