I think you might have misunderstood -- I do not want to "retire" the driver...
 I just think we should hold it back from the mainline kernel until we work out
these problems.

About the lacking feedback, I apologize for not having reviewed this code
earlier.  I saw it sitting on the list for quite some time, and I thought that
you had not wanted it included in the master repository for one reason or
another.  Now I see that it is already included, so I must have been wrong about
that :-P

When I have sufficient time for it, I'll give the code a thorough review and
suggest any changes that I think are applicable.  I understand that you will not
be able to do any further testing, but there are users on the mailing list that
can help with that.

I don't think that the problems are disastrous -- we should be able to resolve
these issues, one way or another.

Cheers,
Mike
