Hi Sergio, if you haven't done so already, then maybe ariff@ is interested in seeing your patches, reviewing them and then MFC'ing the driver changes, so 6-STABLE users can benefit from your work too. I've copied him to this reply. If your merge was ok, it would be (IMHO) beneficial to all if you two guys worked together to bring the driver to a stable enough state for RELENG_6 too, right? :) - Giorgos
