Hi Ganapathi,

Thank you for the patch! Before we move forward with the SRU process
we'll first need to make sure the patch fits the stable patch format.

Has this patch been accepted and applied upstream? If so, we'll need to
make sure we have a "cherry picked" or "backported" from-line that comes
after the upstream patch provenance.

Also, the BugLink line in your commit needs to be adjusted to the exact
spelling and capitalization of "BugLink" for some automated tooling.

It looks like this driver was added as Ubuntu Sauce which means that the
files this patch is modifying are in a different directory. Currently in
the Xenial tree at least, this driver lives here: "ubuntu/rsi" and not
in "drivers/net/wireless/rsi". This will need to be reconciled so the
patch applies cleanly to Xenial.

If you have any questions about the above requirements please feel free
to check the wiki page on the stable patch format criteria [1] or just
ask us.
