afaik, this device is used in production by few manufacturers and it is
usefull for them to have it in the tree and the only reason it is still
in staging is because Tomi announced he will not take any new drivers in
fbdev. And, so I have not taken the initiative to properly move it out
of staging. I think Bartlomiej will also not accept new drivers in fbdev.
