Even if I were the only user, I would still push it upstream. Though in
this case, there are plenty of other users. This is a fairly common
reference board in Japan, which we've supported in the kernel in various
forms for a few years already. The FPGA SMBus implementation is one of
the outstanding bits of support for the platform.
