Linux mainline is the best place for driver code. Once code is accepted upstream, we don't need to worry about it breaking as Linux moves forward. We want SoC vendors and device makers to stop supplying "BSP" and get their drivers integrated and accepted into the upstream kernel. If the driver code is not good enough for mainline, it's not good enough for us.

Rob Cadena, United States1 year ago Comments: Agree - OEMs and Tier1s needs to insist upon this as a sourcing condition.
