For staging drivers I need a maintainer that is going to take the time
to shephard it into the core kernel tree.  See other TODO files for
how that person is defined.  Are you going to be willing to do this?

If so, can you please resend it with those changes to the TODO file, and
add a MAINTAINERS file entry?

Also, I would really like to get a signed-off-by: from the Samsung
authors for this patch, can you do that as well please?
