I have researched a little the patchwork entry and it makes me think that Sean did post it as part of a series for MediaTek Bluetooth drivers to the mediatek mailing list (which is why we can find it in patchwork):


It wasn't discussed there and some other patches of the series have been merged to other trees (e.g. for serdev core).

So I assume Sean is also waiting to get this patch upstream.
