cc lkml? These are very much device specific so only people who can really
review are those who actually have the part or don't mind spending a fair bit
of time familiarizing themselves with a fairly complex driver.
Perhaps runtime pm ones want to go to the runtime pm guys? That bit isn't
really subsystem specific. I'm quite keen to drive that stuff into some of
my drivers, but haven't done it yet so am not familiar enough with the

Dmitry often takes a little while to reply, so I wouldn't give up hope yet.
Sadly, despite numerous people wading in from time to time to tell use we
are doing it all wrong, those who actually are interested day to day in
these sorts of devices are far too thin on the ground.
Personally, if no one responds from input, I'd just push this driver
into misc asap. Can't seen anyone objecting to that.
