I tend to view arch specific embedded code as rather like very
dubious parties. What goes on in other peoples' house out of sight
is none of my business.
The 8250 however is core code so it should keep its clothes on and
behave in a manner befitting its status.

I also believe that Greg spends lots of lonely nights looking into
git commits, drinking his favorite Latte and cursing at all the git
patches that fix a bug that didn't have a Cc: stable tag
attached. He use to have a huge mane of hair on his head before
taking over as stable maintainer.

If it's some desperate cry for attention by somebody, I just wish
those people would release their own sex tapes or something, rather
than drag the Linux kernel into their sordid world.
I do get the impression that you're extremely unhappy with the way
ARM stuff works, and I've no real idea how to solve that. I think
much of it is down to perception rather than anything tangible.
Maybe the only solution is for ARM to fork the kernel, which is
something I really don't want to do - but from what I'm seeing its
the only solution which could come close to making you happy.

This was discussed before, and it was felt that perhaps 75000 lines
of ocaml code was not really appropriate for the Linux source tree.
