Just send patches to alsa-devel ML (and add developers to Cc), then
we'll review the patches and give feedbacks or merge to the upstream
tree.  How to submit is found in $LINUX/Documentation/SubmittingPatches.

I guess many codes will overwrap with the existing aw2 driver.
Could you try to integrate both, at least, to share some code base for

Anyway, before submitting patches, try to reformat your codes to
follow the standard coding style ($LINUX/Documentation/CodingStyle).
$LINUX/scripts/checkpatch.pl is helpful for checking easy coding-style
issues (but it doesn't check everything).

Also, too much debugging stuff shouldn't be in the driver code.
Keep the code as clean as possible before submission.
