Yeah, not that I try to blame you, but I think we need to expose stuff
to linux-next. And people who send patches are frustrated when their
stuff gets no attention for very long time.

I understand that MTD tree maintenance is a burden, and you are very
busy, and no one pays you for this job. Thanks for doing it!

I'm going to try to help you. I've just created a git tree where
I'll push patches I consider OK and I approve. Here it is:

My hope is that you would look at that tree from time to time
and pull it. At least you may be sure I looked at the patches and
did some validation. This should save your time and help MTD
