We've been waiting far too long to get any version of this merged. I
dont think waiting for vapourware is a good idea. So either please post
your new code ASAP given that you apparently have it, or you'll just
have to do more work later. Given how simple the pmem driver is I
really can't see any major merge problems anyway.
