I can boot v4.16 plus staging-next on my mt7621 with no other patches.
An important fix (a63d706ea71919) landed in 4.16-rc7.

It do have
https://github.com/neilbrown/linux/commits/gnubee/v4.15

which was part of preparation for this, but now that very nearly all I
need is in mainline or on its way, I won't be doing much more in that
tree.

I agree that it is quite likely that several of these drivers could and
should reuse current mainline code. I would love to have some help
sorting this out. I won't have much time myself to dig into it for
several weeks, but I'll make time to review and test any code that is
contributed.

Thanks,
