NAK: [SRU][F:linux-bluefield][PATCH v1 0/1] UBUNTU: SAUCE: Sync up mlxbf-gige with upstreamed version

I did "git revert" all 20 commits. So I am wondering how to proceed now:

1) I assume I need to send one pull request for all 20 reverts?
2) Then send another request for the cherry-pick? 
3) where should we send the pull request to? We have been sending you all patches based on the focal repo/master-next branch (git clone git+ssh://<username> The focal repo doesn’t have a remote canonical branch:
git remote -v
origin  git+ssh:// (fetch)
origin  git+ssh:// (push)

4) I will additionally create 2 patches and send them via the focal repo (git send-email .):
	- one for updating the gpio driver
	- one for adding some code in mlxbf-gige we left out in the upstreamed version

Indeed, I do think it is better. Otherwise a lot of potentially valuable change information gets buried.
