The hard part about doing large patches like this that cross lots of
files is that it usually does not end up applying. This patch currently
fails against 4.20-rc1 :(

But, if it were divided up into "one patch per driver" then I could have
applied the majority of them, as only a few drivers changed to require
this series to be rebased and reworked.

I really want to apply this patch series, but as-is, it just can't even
apply... Can you rebase/break up the patches into smaller ones so that
we have a chance to get them merged eventually?

thanks,

greg k-h
