I definitely understand. To be fair, I submitted the patch 3 days
after the window opened (not a couple before it closes), but that is
still after the deadline. The only issue with it going into 4.4 is
that the support isn't in mainline till 4.3 is tagged. It just creates
a bigger lag between the hardware availability and upstream software
availability. Bad timing on our part, I was just hoping. :)
