You did, and as far as I remember, you did not complained much. but
actually, I've rewritten a large enough part of this driver to make the
Acked-by you gave at the time at best outdated. That's why I dropped all

I mentionned it in the cover letter, but I forgot to Cc you one that one

Ok, will do.

The main point of rewriting a part of it was exactly to make the
transition to device-tree and single kernel image easier when the time
