That's great! Thanks Marek and congrats to everyone!

Yeah. I haven't familiarized much with AESS firmware aspect, Peter
Ujfalusi from TI knows it best. Peter has already shared quite some
knowledge in "Porting AESS (ABE) kernel driver" thread. Unfortunately
web archive of kernel at pyra-handheld.com ML is not working well - Marek,
do you have that thread in your local archives?

Meh, I'm fine with whoever just taking the diff and signing with their
name. All I was doing, IIRC, is porting bits of code from TI tree, so
it's not like I'm exactly the author. Also commits I produces are not
exactly in the shape Linux upstream maints would accept.
