Thank you for carrying the out-of-tree PECI patch set so far. I really
appreciate it.

I agree with you that the PECI upstreaming should make a progress now
but I'm still in unbalanced task priorities. I'll try to make it done as
soon as possible but it's not available right now.

As James already said, we'll use a forked tree if PECI patches are
dropped off from OpenBMC linux tree v5.9, and it'll not be a permanent
fork but just for a temporary and alternative way to minimize impact of
dropping off the PECI patch set. Thanks for your understanding in
