Hi Guilherme,

I think what happened is that nobody felt responsible for picking
it up. The patch was sent 'to: linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org'
with a number of people in Cc but nobody listed as a recipient
personally.

I'd suggest that one of you sends it again 'To: gregkh@linuxfoundation.org'
with the subject changed to 'char: genwqe: change maintainer', so
that Greg can add it to his char-misc tree.

Please also add
