I see. I suppose it is still a bit complicated to review? Maybe I could
try to make things easier.

For my submission to staging/ I had taken time to split the driver in an
understandable series of patches[1]. I think it was easier to review than
just sending files one by one. I could do the same thing for the
submission to linux-wireless. It would ask me a bit of work but, since I
already have a template, it is conceivable.

Do you think it is worth it, or it would be an unnecessary effort?
