I was expecting Benjamin Herrenschmidt since he is listed in MAINTAINERS
for drivers/macintosh. I cc'ed him in the patch but now in your answer I
don't see him in the cc list, strange.

But I'll be happy to re-post if there is another person who is handling
the patches for this driver now.

BTW there is another patch [0] for the same driver to export the OF id
table information, that was not picked either.
