I have received the driver from Teddy and pushed it to
https://github.com/sudipm-mukherjee/parport/tree/drm_smi for your first
look into it. It is not even building with next-20171130 and has lots of
build warnings. I will have to do a lot of work on it before I can even
submit it to dri-devel.
Time will be the problem, as this is not part of my day job.

I am hoping that after seeing it, you will agree to have it in staging. :)
