Yes, if people is interested on later fixing the issues. As Antti said
he already broke the driver into more consistent parts, maybe his tree
may be an start.

Ok, Seems fine for me.

The better would be to try to sync with Realtek to be sure that they'll
continue to develop the upstream driver, after having it merged. Otherwise,
someone will need to do the manual sync, and this can be very painful.

Just send the patches. The better is to submit them via linux-media, and say, at
a TODO file, that patches for it should be submitted to linux-media@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Something similar to drivers/staging/tm6000/TODO.
