We (Google) definitely want to get back in sync with mainline (as I've
mentioned earlier in this or a related thread), and we're planning on
snapping up our kernel trees to 2.6.32+ once we get past various
deadlines in the near future.  Obviously action speaks louder than
words here, and I understand Greg's frustration at the slow pace so
far and appreciate his efforts to encourage us to stop dropping the

Probably the two biggest pain points for general driver support are
wakelocks (which we were making some progress on getting cleaned up on
the linux-pm list -- Arve will be respinning those patchsets for
review again before long) and some of the gpio support.  Otherwise,
most of the drivers don't have a lot of dependencies on new core
kernel infrastructure and many effectively stand alone.  For some of
the qualcomm chipsets, there is a fair bit of layering needed for
functions owned by the modem or dsp cores -- smem / smd / rpc / etc.
