Do you mean you did not see the below thread when I asked for help;
it was a kind of propsal, no? Also things take time when you are just a
hobbyist reverse engineering undocumented hardware that you also run in
production. Yes, I'm slow, but the starting point wasn't also a very good.

I don't mind you deleting the driver, and if you think that "no progress"
is true then I'm very sorry for all those commits/noise.
