What subsystem should this code live in?  The -mm code, I'm guessing,
right?  If so, submit it to the linux-mm mailing list for inclusion, you
can point them at what is in drivers/staging right now, or probably it's
easier if you just make a new patch that adds the code that is in
drivers/staging/ to the correct location in the kernel.  That way it's
easier to review and change.  When it finally gets accepted, we can then
delete the drivers/staging code.

hope this helps,
