So we're officially going to use dri-devel for technical details review
and then Greg for merging so we don't have to deal with other merge
criteria dri-devel folks have?

I don't expect anything less by now, but it does make the original claim
that drivers/misc will not step all over accelerators folks a complete
farce under the totally-not-a-gpu banner.

This essentially means that for any other accelerator stack that doesn't
fit the dri-devel merge criteria, even if it's acting like a gpu and uses
other gpu driver stuff, you can just send it to Greg and it's good to go.

There's quite a lot of these floating around actually (and many do have
semi-open runtimes, like habanalabs have now too, just not open enough to
be actually useful). It's going to be absolutely lovely having to explain
to these companies in background chats why habanalabs gets away with their
stack and they don't.

Or maybe we should just merge them all and give up on the idea of having
open cross-vendor driver stacks for these accelerators.

Thanks, Daniel
