Sounds plausible.

I'll try to set aside some time on the weekend to pick up the patch from 
staging, add Henrik's patch, add copyright notices, rename the driver, 
try to build it on top of current linux-next, maybe do some trivial 
style cleanups, then ask on lkml and the relevant topic lists for 
inclusion into linux-next.

Henrik, Ben, or anybody else who happens to have some work in flight, 
don't wait for me to push something out.  I will surely be able to merge 
whatever you come up with in the meantime.  Of course feel free to stop 
me if you have other plans.  :-)  If there is something to talk about 
more directly, you can also ping me on IRC at freenode.  I'm away during 
work hours though.
