SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/5] can: enable multi-queue for SocketCAN devices
Date
Hi Marc,

> Betreff: [PATCH v2 0/5] can: enable multi-queue for SocketCAN devices

You have been interested in seeing the reason why we are proposing the
"can: enable multi-queue for SocketCAN devices" patch for the Linux
mainline. So far I have not heard from you. Do you now see a chance of
getting the patch accepted?
